Migrating CS5604 Applications from CS Container Cluster to Digital Library Research Laboratory


This submission is about migrating applications developed by the Fall 2020 CS 5604 Information Storage and Retrieval class from the VT Computer Science container cluster to the Digital Library Research Laboratory. These containerized applications perform natural language processing and analysis on tweets, digital theses/dissertations and web pages. Our goal was to get these applications running on a new cluster in DLRL, so they can be removed from the VTCS cluster. Our team successfully migrated the applications to DLRL, though several bugs within the applications still remain. The report includes details on our methodology, documentation of changes, and final conclusions on our success. The presentation includes a summary of our accomplishments and an overview of future work needed for the applications to successfully run.
