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.
