Welcome to GC3Pie documentation!


GC3Pie is a Python package for running large job campaigns on diverse batch-oriented execution environments (for instance: a Sun/Oracle/Open Grid Engine cluster, or the Swiss National Distributed Computing Infrastructure SMSCG). It also provides facilities for implementing command-line driver scripts, in the form of Python object classes whose behavior can be customized by overriding specified object methods.

GC3Pie documentation is divided in three sections:

  • User Documentation: info on how to install, configure and run GC3Pie applications.
  • Programmer Documentation: info for programmers who want to use the GC3Pie libraries to write their own scripts and applications.
  • Contributors documentation: detailed information on how to contribute to GC3Pie and get your code included in the main library.
