In what follows we will denote any
unit in the network a node. We will denote the master node as node0, i.e. the machine from which TaskFarmer jobs are launched.
The jobs differ in that the input file is different in every job.
Any number of jobs may be submitted. TaskFarmer will not
check storage constraints of the system : this is assumed to be the
responsibility of the user.
TaskFarmer will automatically submit any number of jobs and will
produce an archived file containing any number of output files.
If the code outputs to stdout, this will
also be saved in a file which is also archived. Email is sent to the
user when all jobs are completed. TaskFarmer
will also maintain a log of
all jobs, their time of execution, and the node on which the job was
run, the user name, and where the data is stored.
