ARO can substantially reduce job pending time, the time a job sits in queue waiting for a resource and improve compute resource utilization by ensuring that jobs are assigned to the best queue/machine combination. The busier the HPC environment, the greater the benefit realized from ARO compared to traditional fixed resource management practices. Improvements of 10% or more in each job’s turnaround time, the time it takes from job submission to getting results, can be achieved using ARO. When aggregated across thousands of jobs, ARO significantly improves the productivity of the design team.
ARO currently supports LSF, SGE and UGE, but can be adapted for proprietary environments as well.
