The BES++ Client is a generic client used in previous interop tests, which is being used as the base client for the interop application demo and can be obtained here.

Standard Setup

- In order to target UNICORE endpoint please contact Shahbaz for ftp username and password to be used in the attached unicore-ogf27-fsp.xml.

Application Information

The Fortran Minem.tar.gz provided by David Wallom. You will need a Fortran compiler to build the executables (e.g. GNU Fortran), but if you're lucky the pre-built executables may work on your system (as reported by /usr/bin/file, they're ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped).

From David Wallom:

"It is a command line app written in fortran which can be built easily using GNU fortran. The workflow has a piece of preprocessing to generate a stated number of input files, a parallel set of processing and then a final post processing. The interop part will be for the middle parallel processing of course. I have attached the tar.gz file of the app.

A more details description of the workflow is below:

1) ./make_runs $CHARGE $WAYS $OUTROOT Generates the input files for the main minimisation app, They're named ${OUTROOT}_${CHARGE}_${N}.in

2) for (N=1,N=$WAYS,N++) {update_file ${OUTROOT}_${CHARGE}_${N}.in ${OUTROOT}_${CHARGE}_${N}.out}

3) ./compile_results $CHARGE $WAYS $OUTROOT >> ${OUTROOT}_compile_results_output

Will read all of the .out files generated in the previous step and generate a single file with the best solution identified."

With the executable directory on your path, you can use to see how the application works.
