Abstract

The kickstart executable is a light-weight program that is distributed as part of the GriPhyN Virtual Data System. It sits in between the remote scheduler and the executable, gathering additional information about the executable run-time behavior, including, but not limited to, the exit status of jobs and information to ease grid debugging, in a uniform fashion without assistance from the scheduling system. Kickstart provides the necessary information required by provenance tracking systems to accurately annotate data products. The authors believe kickstart is of value for anyone running applications on the Grid. We would like to make the community aware of its existence and benefits.
