This IBM® Redpaper™ publication shows IBM Tivoli® Workload Scheduler (TWS) LoadLeveler® (LoadLeveler) users how to migrate their workloads to IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility (LSF®).
LoadLeveler is a parallel job scheduling system that enables users to run more jobs in less time. It does so by matching each job's processing needs and priority with the available resources, thereby maximizing resource use. LoadLeveler also provides a single point of control for effective workload management, and supports high-availability configurations.
LSF is a powerful workload manager for demanding, distributed, and mission-critical high-performance computing (HPC) environments. When you want to address complex problems, simulation scenarios, extensive calculations, or anything else that needs compute power, and then run them as jobs, you can submit them using LSF.
