We are happy to annouce the release of Pegasus 4.3.1. Pegasus 4.3.1 is a minor release, that has minor enhancements and fixes bugs to Pegasus 4.3.0 release.
- Support for Fixed Output Mapper
Using this output mapper, users can specify an externally accessible URL in the properties file, pointing to a directory where the output files needs to be transferred to. To use this mapper, set the following propertiespegasus.dir.storage.mapper Fixedpegasus.dir.storage.mapper.fixed.url <url to the storage directory e.g. gsiftp://outputs.isi.edu/shared/outputs>
- pegasus-analyzer does not detect jobs that are condor_rm’ed if no postscript is associated with the job
By default, each job has a postscript associated that detects an empty job stdout and flags it as a failure. However, if a job is not asscociated with a postscript and a user/system condor_rm’s the job, the failure is not detected. This is now fixed, and a JOB_ABORTED event is logged in the stampede database, when a job is aborted.
- IRODS support in pegasus-transfer
The IRODS support in pegasus-transfer was broken. This is now fixed.
- pegasus-kickstart compilation warnings for character encodings
kickstart maintains a table to escape characters correctly for putting them in a XML document. The non-ascii characters in the table were latin1 not UTF-8. This caused a warning on newer versions of gcc, which could not be disabled across all platforms. kickstart now writes out it;s output in UTF-8 encoding and the xml escaping was updated accordingly.
- Fix to URL handling in the planner
Changed the regex in PegasusURL so that we can pass urls with just the hostnames specified. e.g http://isis.isi.edu Note: no trailing / . Before the fix, the planner was throwing an exception if a user specified an input URL with path names containing only one directory.
- planner had a rogue debug statement
There was a rogue system.out statement in the planner output that led to a statement being logged for each job in the workflow.
pegasus-statistics had 2.6 style codePegasus is distributed as part of OSG software stack, and one of the supported platforms there is EL5 systems that come with Python 2.4. pegasus-statistics had some code that was compatible with 2.5. This is now fixed.
