Workflow Management System Simulation Workbench

WRENCH is an open-source library for developing workflow simulators. WRENCH exposes several high-level simulation abstractions to provide the building blocks for developing custom simulators.

More information and Documentation: WRENCH Project Website

WRENCH Research Paper:

Prerequisites

WRENCH is fully developed in C++. The code follows the C++11 standard, and thus older compilers tend to fail the compilation process. Therefore, we strongly recommend users to satisfy the following requirements:

  • CMake - version 3.2.3 or higher

And, one of the following:

  • g++ - version 5.0 or higher
  • clang - version 3.6 or higher

Dependencies

Required Dependencies

Optional Dependencies

  • Google Test - version 1.8 or higher (only required for running test cases)
  • Doxygen - version 1.8 or higher (only required for generating documentation)
  • Batsched - only needed for batch-scheduled resource simulation

Building From Source

If all dependencies are installed, compiling and installing WRENCH is as simple as running:

cmake .
make
make install  # try "sudo make install" if you don't have the permission to write

For enabling the use of Batsched:

cmake -DENABLE_BATSCHED=on .
make
make install  # try "sudo make install" if you don't have the permission to write

Get in Touch

The main channel to reach the WRENCH team is via the support email: support@wrench-project.org.

Bug Report / Feature Request: our preferred channel to report a bug or request a feature is via
WRENCH's Github Issues Track.

Citing WRENCH

When citing WRENCH, please use the following paper. You should also actually read that paper, as it provides a recent and general overview on the framework.
