Disconnected from OAR job 960063
Ever been disconnected from Grid'5000 machines with a message like this, losing part or all of your work?
Vizir is a simple Ruby script that monitors your interactive jobs on Grid’5000. It triggers Growl notifications when your reservations are going to terminate, allowing you to save your work and/or your deployed environments.
Vizir only supports Mac OS X.
Run the following if you haven't already:
$ gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
Install the gem:
$ sudo gem install priteau-vizir
Vizir uses RubyCocoa to trigger Growl notifications. RubyCocoa is shipped with Mac OS X 10.5, so it should work out of the box on Leopard.
Run Vizir in the background, using the --login switch with your Grid'5000 login name.
$ vizir --login priteau &
