Description

The pegasus-sc-converter program is used to convert the site catalog from one format to another.

Currently, the following formats of site catalog exist.

XML4

This format is a superset of previous formats. All information about a site that can be described about a site can be described in this format. In addition, the user has finer grained control over the specification of directories and FTP servers that are accessible at the head node and the worker node. The user can also specify which different file-servers for read/write operations

A sample entry in this format looks as follows

<site handle="osg" arch="x86" os="LINUX" osrelease="" osversion="" glibc="">
        <grid  type="gt2" contact="viz-login.isi.edu/jobmanager-pbs" scheduler="PBS" jobtype="compute"/>
        <grid  type="gt2" contact="viz-login.isi.edu/jobmanager-fork" scheduler="Fork" jobtype="auxillary"/>

        <directory path="/tmp" type="local-scratch">
                <file-server operation="put" url="file:///tmp"/>
        </directory>

        <profile namespace="pegasus" key="style">condor</profile>
        <profile namespace="condor" key="universe">vanilla</profile>
</site>
