batchtools: Tools for Computation on Batch Systems
Version 0.9.6

As a successor of the packages 'BatchJobs' and 'BatchExperiments', this package provides a parallel implementation of the Map function for high performance computing systems managed by schedulers 'IBM Spectrum LSF' (), 'OpenLava' (), 'Univa Grid Engine'/'Oracle Grid Engine' (), 'Slurm' (), 'TORQUE/PBS' (), or 'Docker Swarm' (). A multicore and socket mode allow the parallelization on a local machines, and multiple machines can be hooked up via SSH to create a makeshift cluster. Moreover, the package provides an abstraction mechanism to define large-scale computer experiments in a well-organized and reproducible way.
