2015-10 Most opportunistic cycles for a site

Most opportunistic cycles for a site  

In the month of September, sites on the Open Science Grid (OSG) provided 12 million computational hours to opportunistic users—users who do not own any of the resources on the site. The single largest source of these resources was the Syracuse University OrangeGrid (SU-OG), which provided over 5.4 million hours. SU-OG, developed in 2012, harvests idle computing power in computers across the Syracuse University campus for research computing and has now grown to include over 12,000 CPU cores. In November 2014 SU-OG was added as an OSG site, allowing capacity unused by Syracuse users to go to users and virtual organizations (VOs) of the OSG. In the month of September, the VO harvesting the most cycles from SU-OG was Mu2e, which obtained 2.4 million computational hours.
