Design and Architecture of a Gateway for Supporting Both Batch and Interactive Computing Modes on Supercomputers

Supercomputing resources are used in both interactive and batch computing modes. The interactive mode is typically used for software development and testing purposes, or for running various command-line tools that work in a user-guided manner. The batch mode is often used for running a large number of jobs simultaneously or for large-scale runs that do not require interaction with the users. We needed a gateway (a web-portal) that could support both interactive and batch computing modes. The interactive mode was required for using a command-line tool for code parallelization through a web browser, and the batch mode was required for compiling and running the programs parallelized using the tool on the production systems at open-science data centers. We are iteratively developing this gateway, and its current version is live at https://ipt.tacc.cloud. An overview of the design and implementation of this gateway is presented in this paper. With minimal modifications, the architecture of this gateway can be reused for supporting other similar projects.
