PanDA Client

PanDA Client is a tool which allows user to submit jobs to PanDA server.


PanDA Client can be obtained from github it's a part of server code:

# git clone


export PYTHONPATH=$PWD/bigpanda-client:$PYTHONPATH #add client to python path

export X509_CERT_DIR="/etc/grid-security/certificates" #set the CA certificates directory

export PANDA_URL=http://pandaserver:25080/server/panda #set the HTTP URL to server

export PANDA_URL_SSL=https://pandaserver:25443/server/panda #set the HTTPS URL to server

Example test scripts

You can find an examples by the link:

Submitting jobs using python scripts

Job can be submitted as following:

# python ANALY_RRC-KI-HPC (where ANALY_RRC-KI-HPC is a dedicated PanDA site name )

Testing you certificate and server connection

To run the jobs user should have valid certificate and create proxy:

voms-proxy-init --cert ~/.globus/usercert.pem --key ~/.globus/userkey.pem

by default proxy file will be created at /tmp with name x509up_uXXXXX, where XXXXX is your UID

Simplest way to check PanDA server is to run following command:

curl --cert /tmp/x509up_uXXXXX --capath /etc/grid-security/certificates https://pandaserver:25443/server/panda/isAlive -v

Right response should be: alive=yes

Certificates troubleshooting

Userfull commands for debugging:


openssl s_client -host pandaserver -port 25443

openssl x509 -in ~/.globus/usercert.pem -issuer -noout
