Description thzeiser 2011-12-15 11:25:59 MST
The example scripts for mom_priv/blcr_checkpoint_script and
mom_priv/blcr_restart_script given on
http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/resources/docs/torque/2-5-9/2.6jobcheckpoint.php
no longer work. E.g. there is now an additional argument $groupId" to both
scripts. Moreover, the scripts included in the directory contrib/blcr of the
sources are much more advanced as they for example include this fix but also
dropping privileges). Thus, the examples on the web page should be either
updated or substituted by a reference to the contrib/blcr directory.

However, the number and the type of the arguments given to both scripts should
be described on the web page (missing currently). Moreover, the mom_priv/config
options $checkpoint_interval, etc. are not at all listed on
http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/resources/docs/torque/2-5-9/a.cmomconfig.php.
In particular it would be worth mentioning what the default for
$checkpoint_interval is and if a value of zero e.g. means no automatic
checkpoints.
