Experimaestro is an experiment manager based on a server that contains a job scheduler (job dependencies, locking mechanisms) and a framework to describe the experiments with JavaScript or in Java.

  • A job scheduler that handles dependencies between jobs and provides locking mechanisms The job scheduler can be controlled via command line (experimaestro script) or via the web (where you can easily monitor jobs in real time) and handles

    1. Shell commands
    2. OAR jobs
    3. Hadoop jobs (planned)
  • A modular experiment description framework, that allows easy description of the various parts of experiments:

    • Experiments are written in JavaScript or in Java (with annotations)
    • Tasks describe the components that can be used, take as input json objects and produce json objets as output
    • Tasks can be composed through the definition of an experimental plan

Both modules can be used independently even though they were designed to work together.

Experimaestro is in a beta state - which means that you might experience some bugs while using it; but as I use it on a daily basis, their number and importance is going down each day.
