Feature: DIET


Package DIET an open source middleware for High Performance Computing.


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 17
  • Last updated: 2012-01-15
  • Percentage of completion: 50%

Detailed Description

DIET is a grid toolkit originally developped by INRIA and now co-maintained with SysFera a company vishnu is a collection of DIET services co-developped by SysFera and EDF (energy company)

omniORB is available under GPLv2/LGPLv2.1 (binaries/libraries) DIET/vishnu under the CeCILL-A (a GPLv2 like license -fully compliant-, written to complies with French laws and compatible with international treaties ratified by France)

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora will take some benefit to offer a grid toolkit both easy and scalable as DIET. Since DIET requires omniORB4, Fedora will also gain industrial-grade CORBA 2.6 implementation for C++ and Python.


Required steps are:

  1. omniORB package
  2. DIET package
  3. vishnu package
  4. optional: python-omniORB package

How To Test

  • Ensure that a DIET hierarchy can be launched and start submitting computational requests
  • Collect feedback from Fedora & DIET communities

Contingency Plan

None necessary. All packages have been built and tested for a long time, since i'm one of the upstream maintainer, i'll help fixing and backporting issues between upstream and Fedora.
