[gold-users] Gold : Issue with refunding the reserved amount

Hi Akshar, 

You can clear reserations with the grmres command. 

If you want to clear all of them use `grmres -n 257`. 
If you want to clear just one of them, run glsres -n 257 and then use the reservation id with grmres, i.e. `grmres -r 123`. 
If you want to clear all expired reservation use `grmres -I`. 

Reservations are not yet charged, hence grefund will not do anything. They are placeholders against your funds which automatically expire after the estimated wallclock duration for the job. 

Thanks, 

Scott

Hi, 
we have gold version 2.1.7.1 running on rhel 5.2. We have PBS +maui+gold combination for our 48 nodes cluster. We have observed strange problem that for one of the user, some amount of cpu time is shown as reserved. Now job for which cpu time is reserved is not in queue, it has been cancelled by user. Job tried to run and came back 10-12 times and finally it was cancelled by user. 
The total of amount reserved as shown in gold for this job is the amount which is total of amount reserved for the job whenever it went for running(10-12 times). Now we have 

when listed the jobs run by user rocky, (as shown in the last table) we can see that total amount blocked is (14* 54150) and job with id 257 does nnot exist. 

Also ./grefund -J 257 says that no matching job found also /grefund -J 257 -j 273 also gives same error. 

How to clear reserved amount?
