Flight of the Condor

The patterns of use in a grid computing array, taken from the usage log for one day of the Condor grid project at the University of Wisconsin. Condor regularly delivers 400 CPU days per day of essentially "free" computing to academics at the university and elsewhere, more than many supercomputer centers.

At any moment during the day, on average...

  • 14.2% of computers were in use by their owners
  • 78.9% were in use by Condor
  • 7% were idle
  • 25% were in use by owners (peak time)
  • 89% were in use by Condor (peak time)
