1.5 Availability

Condor is currently available as a free download from the Internet via the World Wide Web at URL http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/downloads. Binary distributions of Condor version 6.x are available for the platforms detailed in Table 8.1. A platform is an architecture/operating system combination. Condor binaries are available for most major versions of UNIX, as well as Windows NT.

In the table, clipped means that Condor does not support checkpointing or remote system calls on the given platform. This means that standard jobs are not supported, only vanilla jobs. See section 2.4.1 on page [*] for more details on job universes within Condor and their abilities and limitations.

The Condor source code is not currently available for public download. If you desire the Condor source code, please contact the Condor Team in order to discuss it further (see Section 1.7, on page [*]).

For more platform-specific information about Condor's support for various operating systems, see Chapter 6 on page [*].

Jobs submitted to the standard universe utilize condor_ compile to relink programs with libraries provided by Condor. Table 1.2 lists supported compilers by platform. Other compilers may work, but are not supported.
