How do you add your institutional HPC cluster to the Open Science Grid (OSG)?



What is the process for contributing cycles to the Open Science Grid?

Hi Jacob

Great question. To my knowledge, there are two options available. If you want to contribute cycles by allowing more than 500 jobs at a time, it is a good idea to set up HTCondor-CE. See more details here at
The other is a light weight approach based on an account and SSH key set up.
Here is a good starting doc for the OSG managed services
