DescriptionThe Open Science Grid(OSG) is a world-wide computing system which facilitates distributed computing for scientific research. It can distribute a computationally intensive job to geo-distributed clusters and process job's tasks in parallel. For compute clusters on the OSG, physical resources may be shared between OSG and cluster's local user-submitted jobs, with local jobs preempting OSG-based ones. As a result, job preemptions occur frequently in OSG, sometimes significantly delaying job completion time.

We have collected job data from OSG over a period of more than 80 days. We present an analysis of the data, characterizing the preemption patterns and different types of jobs. Based on observations, we have grouped OSG jobs into 5 categories and analyze the runtime statistics for each category. we further choose different statistical distributions to estimate probability density function of job runtime for different classes.
