BC Team Feedback
At the time the BC team received your input on "Interactive Computing Needs" last year, the team was already working on a BC project entitled "Common Interactive Access" to provide users with interactive access to production systems as well as user-owned batch jobs at each of the six participating sites.
Our interactions with other working groups within the HPCMP, however, led us believe that the BC project "Common Interactive Access" could best be implemented by the HPCMP Workload Management Team (WMT). Subsequently, the BC team approached the WMT, and by consensual agreement, the "Common Interactive Access" project was passed on to the WMT in March 2008.
