What is Included in the HPC Pack 2008 SharePoint Integration Sample

Updated: June 9, 2010

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007, Windows HPC Server 2008

The Windows HPC Pack 2008 SharePoint Integration Sample includes three Web Parts that a SharePoint Server 2007 administrator can install on the server. A SharePoint site administrator can use the HPC Web Parts to create a Web-based interface to a Windows® HPC Server 2008 cluster. This topic describes the HPC Web Parts and the files that are included in the sample. This topic includes the following sections:

The HPC Web Parts

The SharePoint Web Parts solution file contains the HPC Job List, HPC Job Submit, and HPC Job Details Web Parts. Together, these Web Parts provide the ability to submit, monitor, and manage compute jobs. The HPC Web Parts provide a subset of the functionality that is available to cluster users in HPC Job Manager.

HPC Job List Web Part

The HPC Job List displays the jobs on the Windows HPC cluster. You can monitor the state of your job, and you can click on your job ID to access the following actions:

  • View Job: View job or task properties, states, and results.

  • Modify Job: Make changes or add tasks to active jobs.

  • Copy Job: Run a job again, either as-is, or with changes.

  • Cancel Job: Remove a job or task from the queue, and free its resources. If you cancel a running job, it is marked as Failed.

  • Requeue Job: Put unfinished jobs or tasks back into the queue.
