I can’t tell exactly from the email if you now have a current allocation on Comet (I do!). Once you do, I’m happy to change the script

  (line 79 of /home/socsci/uci/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/jobs/runners/cli_job/slurm.py) on socscicompute.ss.uci.edu, to have Galaxy submit the jobs to Comet under that allocation.  (Of importance:  the ‘ucissg' user on Comet must be on the allocation for this to work—as far as I can tell, the ucissg user on Comet is not currently on any active allocations). 
  let me know the name of an active allocation that 'ucissg’ is on, on Comet, I’ll go ahead and put that in the code.

I don’t, however, have any real time to spend on this. So, when you (or someone else) can let me know the name of an active allocation that 'ucissg’ is on, on Comet, I’ll go ahead and put that in the code. Eric

(Nancy says: There are two components to the gateway – keeping the server running at UCI and keeping a Comet allocation so that the server can launch jobs on Comet). Eric: If I recall correctly, the project identifier may be hardcoded in the galaxy job runner cli code. But I suspect that if you get a new allocation on Comet (at SDSC: did this), it would be a very simple fix to have http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu (CoSSci) work again (Eric).

Nancy, Eric, the XSEDE allocation was out during my cancer as you know; renewed drwhite. XSEDE password: Quaki1234 to Sept13’17  thus renewed an XSEDE potential for job submission-allocation. There are two components to the gateway – 1) keeping the server running at UCI and 2) keeping a Comet allocation so that the server can launch jobs on Comet. Eric: This is the message from Ken Hackworth with directions for renewing the allocation: Take a look at that message: need to log in to http://portal.xsede.edu with your username drwhite. XSEDE password: Quaki1234 There is probably a button if you need to reset the password for renewal (Nancy says:  There are two components to the gateway – keeping the server running at UCI and keeping a Comet allocation so that the server can launch jobs on Comet). Eric: If I recall correctly, the project identifier may be hardcoded in the galaxy job runner cli code.  But I suspect that if you get a new allocation on Comet (at SDSC: did this), it would be a very simple fix to have http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu (CoSSci) work again (Eric).

Doug: maybe we (Eric?) can get CoSSci working again?

2017: Yes Doug, Stu and I worked with you on your social science gateway at SDSC.

2017 When I was working on it, the gateway was already itself running from a uci.edu machine, but it was submitting jobs to Comet at SDSC. Are you looking to have it submit jobs to a UC Irvine machine instead? Or do you mean something else by “move the software to UC Irvine”?

Have you still been working with Harry Mangalam and Francisco Lopez at UCI? I thought that they were going to help you with SocSciCompute after the XSEDE Gateway support ended.

Sincerely, Eric

Are you that same Eric Blau?  It was with SDSC (UCSD campus, super computer) and now want to move the software to my home campus at UC Irvine

Eric Blau and Stu Stuart Martin will take over as ECSS consultants for the CoSSci Gateway. Lukasz is in the process of transitioning things to Eric, and during this period will continue to work on the gateway and provide needed support.

ESGF Transfer Eric Blau (U. of Chicago, blau@mcs.anl.gov), Rachana Ananthakrishnan (U. of Chicago, ranantha@uchicago.edu): "we’ll provide an update on the transfer capabilities available in ESGF. Updates include using latest GridFTP version of server, simplification of install process, “Science DMZ” friendly install options and improvements to Wget for usability.” Open Source Earth System Grid Federation
ESGF's primary goal is to facilitate advancements in Earth System Science. It is an interagency and international effort led by the Department of Energy (DOE), and co-funded by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Science Foundation (NSF), and international laboratories such as the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ), the Australian National University (ANU) National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace (IPSL), and the British Atmospheric Data Center (BADC). The ESGF mission is to:
Support current CMIP5 activities, and prepare for future assessments
Develop data and metadata facilities for inclusion of observations and reanalysis products for CMIP5 use
Enhance and improve current climate research infrastructure capabilities through involvement of the software development community and through adherence to sound software principles
Foster collaboration across agency and political boundaries
Integrate and interoperate with other software designed to meet the objectives of ESGF: e.g., software developed by NASA, NOAA, ESIP, and the European ES-INES
Create software infrastructure and tools that facilitate scientific advancements

2002/1/1 Publisher Springer Berlin Heidelberg Description Abstract Grids comprise an infrastructure that enables scientists to use a diverse set of distributed remote services and resources as part of complex scientific problem-solving processes. We analyze some of the challenges involved in deploying software and components transparently in Grids. We report on three practical solutions used by the Globus Project. Lessons learned from this experience lead us to believe that it is necessary to support a variety of software and component deployment strategies. These strategies ...
