Previously, existing statistic collection facilities (ViewCollector) used flat files that were only usable through the condor_stats tool. With this update, a new view collector plug-in has been developed to provide a new operational data store capability for Grid using a NoSQL database. The plug-in writes classad data (Machine, Submitter) to a mongodb NoSQL database. Grid machine and submitter statistics are now generally available to a variety of mongodb programming language drivers for C++, Python, Ruby, and other languages.
This Technology Preview is only supported on RHEL6 at this time.
Technology Preview features are not currently supported under Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription services, may not be functionally complete, and are generally not suitable for production use. However, these features are included as a customer convenience and to provide the technologies with wider exposure.
Customers may find these features useful in non-production environments, and can provide feedback and functionality suggestions prior to their transition to fully supported status. Erratas will be provided for high-priority security issues.
During its development additional components of a Technology Preview feature may become available to the public for testing. It is the intention of Red Hat to fully support Technology Preview features in a future release.
