Using Globus with FreeBSD
Brooks Davis and Craig Lee, The Aerospace Corporation
After years of development by the high performance
computing (HPC) community, grid computing has
hit the mainstream as one of the hottest buzzwords
in computing technology today. This paper examines
the issues involved in integrating FreeBSD with
the Globus Toolkit, the de facto standard for grid
computing. Particular attention is paid to interactions
between Globus and FreeBSD's package management
system. Ways in which FreeBSD could be
enhanced to make it a more attractive platform for
Globus are also discussed.
