clusterlib 0.1

Tools to manage jobs on super-computers

The goal of this library is to ease the creation, launch and management of embarassingly parallel jobs on supercomputer such as SLURM. Some basic primitives (pure python NO-SQL database) to work in distributed memory architecture are provided.

Aims: simple, pure python

If you want to parallelize your python jobs in shared memory architecture, I advise you to use joblib.

Getting the latest code

To get the latest code using git, simply type:

git clone git://

If you don’t have git installed, you can download a zip or tarball of the latest code:


As any Python packages, to install clusterlib, simply do:

python install

in the source code directory.
