Overview

Kestrel: An XMPP-based Many-Task Computing Framework

Description:

Kestrel is a job scheduler and dispatcher for distributed computing systems, particularly Virtual Organization Clusters, and uses XMPP for monitoring the state of all compute elements in the cluster and dispatching tasks.

Dependencies:

Kestrel depends on the SleekXMPP library, but there currently is no SleekXMPP package on PyPI. Download and install a copy from GitHub before installing kestrel.

Development:

Most development is being done at Bitbucket, but there is a Google Code project as well.
