The Condor matchmaker provides a powerful mechanism for matching together both users job requirements and resource providers requirements in such a manner that not only is a paring selected which satisfies both requirements but is optimal for both. This has made the Condor system a good choice for use as a meta-scheduler within the Grid. Integrating Condor within a wider Grid context is possible but only through modification to the Condor source code. Here we describe how the standards for job submission and resource descriptions can be integrated into the Condor system to allow arbitrary Grid resources which support these standards to be brokered through Condor.
