Workflows: Deep Dive

Greg Logan

In this workshop we take a deep dive through the complete lifecycle of a workflow, from scheduling, through ingest and processing, and finally to delivery.  This talk will be highly technical, but should be accessible for anyone familiar with day-to-day Opencast management.

Topics covered:

  • What is a workflow, and how is it different than a job?
  • How is a job scheduled and dispatched
  • How a job's load affects the system, and job dispatching
  • Server and service states
