Mufasa: Robust Meta-Workflow Management at eScience 2022

This week, I'll be presenting Ben Lyon's M.S. project work on Mufasa at the eScience 2022 conference in Salt Lake City.   Mufasa is a meta-workflow manager that schedules multiple workflows onto a cluster.  When executing a large number of workflows, the WMS itself can have substantial resource consumption on the head node, network, and shared filesystem as it moves data to and from the cluster.  Mufasa schedules these resources, ensuring that the system maintains throughput even under heavy load of arriving workflows.
