16One of the top-tier institutions in China In 1981, the college became one of the first institutions authorized to offer Computer Software PhD program in ChinaIn 1985, the college became one of the first institutions authorized to found the post-doctoral research centerIn 1987, Computer Software program offered by the college was honored as one of the Key Disciplines of the nationIn 1993, the Open Lab of Symbolic Computation and Knowledge Engineering directly administered by the State Education Commission was founded.
17One of the top-tier institutions in China In 1999, the Key Lab of Computer Communications directly sponsored by the Ministry of Information Industry was established.In 2002, the discipline of Computer and Software Science and Information Processing was funded by national “Tenth five-year plan” 211 project as key discipline.In 2002, the discipline of Computer Software and Theory was honored as the Key Discipline of the nation again.In 2004, the college was authorized to found S&T Innovation Platform of ‘Computing and Software Science’ funded by the national “985” project.
18Recent research activities ProjectsIn the recent five years, the college has finished 110 projects supported by CNSF, national “973” high-tech program, national “863” high-tech program and so on, the funds obtained are about RMB 60 million Yuan in total.There are 45 under-going projects funded by government, the total funding is about 45 million RMB Yuan.
19Recent research activities AwardsIn the past five years, the college has won more than 20 awards from the government, likeSecond Prize of National Science and Technology Progress AwardSpecial Prize by Electronic Ministry“Ninth five-year plan” National Key Science and Technology Projects AwardFirst prize for Jilin Province Science and Technology Progress,Etc.PublicationsMore than 900 papers24 books/monographs
20International Collaboration Our college has established collaborative relationships with many universities and institutes like:Research Center of Cooperation, West Virginian University, USA.Research Institute of High Performance Computation, SingaporeDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, National University of SingaporeDepartment of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of British Columbia, CanadaPlatform Computing Inc, CanadaUCSD, USAIST, JapanAutomation & Computer Aided Engineering Dept, Chinese University of Hong Kong,etc
21International Collaboration The college has signed agreements to establish people training programs with world famous IT companies, such asIBM, Microsoft, ORACLE, SUN, HP, Ricoh and BEA, etc.International ConferencesIn July, 2005, the college hosted the International Bioinformatics Workshop; more than 200 representatives from abroad and China attended the conferenceetc
22Recent Research Activities on Grid Computing The College started its research on grid computing since 2000, however, the research on high performance computing dated back to 1980.The College started to collaborate with UCSD (US), AIST (Japan) and Platform Inc (Ca) from 2003 in the fields of grid computing and middleware.From 2004 to 2005, working with Platform the College delivered the WSRF based CSF (Community Scheduler Framework) as a contribution component of GT4.To provide a grid test bed for data-intensive applications like iGap, JLU, UCSD and AIST are working at integrating meta-scheduler (CSF), local scheduler (LSF/SGE) and Gfarm.
23Recent Research Activities on Grid Computing From 2005, JLU started to get involved in the Pacific Rim Undergraduate Experience by sending students and faculty members to UCSD.Another on-going co-research project between JLU and Platform is aiming at developing a grid operating system prototype.Project Funded by CNSFTo research the methods to monitor and evaluate the execution performance of grid applications
24Community Scheduler Framework 4.0 – CSF4 What is CSFFull name: Community Scheduler FrameworkCSF is a meta-scheduler working at grid levelThe first version of CSF, CSF3, was developed based on GT3-OGSI, contributed by Platform (a CA software company/LSF)CSF4 is the GT4-WSRF compliant version of CSF, providing the same functionalities as CSF3CSF is an open source project and can be accessed at (the cvs mainline code is csf4)The development team of CSF4 is from Jilin University
25Community Scheduler Framework 4.0 – CSF4 CSF4 is a contribution to GT4
27Implementing Data Aware Scheduling in Gfarm using LSF Plug-in Mechanism MotivationsData-intensive jobs are drawing more attentionsiGap - UCSD/NBCR (Dr. Wilfred W. Li)Gfarm – (a data grid middleware , AIST Dr. Osamu,)Gfarm is a global parallel file system and provides a single file system image to the usersLike most data grid software, gfarm needs a job queuing and scheduling mechanismManual method to locate data-affinity hosts and manage data is not scalable (Gfarm – gfrun/mpirun, without job queuing)Conflicts between usersLoad imbalance
28Data aware Scheduling Job scheduling (move job to data) Put jobs in the queuesFind the best hosts for gfarm jobsConstraint the number of running jobs to access a data replicaData management (move data to jobs)create new data replicas when the job load is highFind the host location based on job resource requirementAvoid generating multiple large data replicas within one scheduling sessiondelete the obsolete data replicas automatically
29Using the LSF scheduler plug-in mechanism No need to write a job scheduler from scratchBe able to work with other scheduler policies like FCFS, fair-share, preemption, backfill, etc.
