The DRMAA Working Group Charter
The DRMAA working group deliverables are intended to facilitate the development of portable application programs and high-level libraries such as SAGA or OGSA-BES.
DRM system vendors can provide a standardized access to their product through a DRMAA implementation. High-level API designers, meta-scheduler architects and end users can rely on such DRMAA implementations for a unified access to execution resources.
The scope of the API standardization is focused on job submission, job control, reservation management, and retrieval of job and machine monitoring information.
DRMAA Version 2 - The Current Version
DRMAA Version 1 - Deprecated, Deployed and Available
We collected a number of usage stories for DRMAA in science and industry.
If you want to implement DRMAA, you can use the official DRMAA compliance test suite.
All open and resolved issues regarding the documents are maintained in the GridForge Issue Tracker
