Using Remote Services

You can access and use your cluster from the command-line tools, from the Web User Interface of the Cluster Manager, or from any of our programming language APIs. With only a few exceptions, the feature was designed to be transparent to both the developers and the users of programs that use it.

In this section, we will review the common client configuration properties, and then we will explain the most important commands that you can run from the command line: job commands, batch commands, repository commands, and node commands. Some commands may be restricted to the administrator role, and others may be supported only if the Cluster Manager was installed. For a complete list of commands, please refer to the command line tool help grbcluster —help. Finally, we will describe how the commands can be applied to execute distributed algorithms.

We will discuss later how to program with Remote Services.
