Mode of Operation

Experiments with the parallel analysis server have shown that running an interactive analysis daemon requires dedicated resources on the server side to provide reasonable analysis performance. Furthermore, interactive scheduling is required as running the analysis daemon in a batch environment did not turn out to be feasible. This is basically due to the fact that interactive analysis simply requires the analysis server to quickly respond whenever a request comes in. Waiting time generated by a batch system would be a major contradiction to this requirement, and would not be accepted by any tool user.
