A full-featured, high performance job scheduler, NetworkComputer is designed to manage complex
workload environments. NetworkComputer’s scalable event-driven architecture combined with its small memory footprint and sub-second dispatch latency accelerates design throughput and maximizes capacity utilization capable of running billions of jobs per day.
Equipped with a comprehensive set of policy management features including FairShare and Preemption, NetworkComputer provides the essential controllability and observability tools to set and alter policies to optimize workload environment as needed. NetworkComputer enables the implementation of fair share policies for both hardware resources and software licenses to ensure that business-critical work is completed on time.
Job preemption and reservations can be used to allow urgent jobs to take precedence over less important jobs. NetworkComputer can suspend running jobs and resume them once higher priority jobs have been completed hence eliminating the need to set aside licenses for urgent jobs. NetworkComputer can achieve 100% license utilization while servicing all classes of jobs.
NetworkComputer provides visualization and failure identification capabilities that provide a “big picture” view of jobs that have completed, failed, and/or waiting. This provides system administrators with greater productivity to easily identify any given job status while quickly analyzing the root cause of a failing job by bringing up relevant report files.
System administrators can easily configure NetworkComputer to send automatic alerts to users or administrators when situations occur.
