The STAR Scheduler
It presents itself as an abstract layer on top of “a” batch system : users writes a job description of his “intent” in XML (eXtensible Markup Langage)
Fully integrated with the STAR FileCatalog
has the ability to use dd and/or centralized storage, no need to keep track of files
deals with several batch systems AND/OR site resources (no need to know about implementation specifics ; you are ready for running on the Grid)
It is capable of doing resource brokering !!! (multiple choices get resolved according to policies)
You have to comply with a few XML rules
It DOES NOT start the coffee machine in the morning :-) ...
