I'm running torque 2.3.7 and maui 3.2.6.
Everything appears to working fine. I can submit jobs and they run
I'll dump my configs, if required.
I've got this weird problem where my nodes have 8GB of RAM, however when
I submit jobs to torque that request mem=8gb, they are never started by
maui. If I was to submit the same job to torque and request mem=7900mb,
maui will then start the job.
Pbsnodes in torque shows 8GB of memory:
state = free
np = 8
properties = corvus
ntype = cluster
status = opsys=linux,uname=Linux 220.127.116.11-0.12-smp #1 SMP Thu May
17 14:00:09 UTC 2007 x86_64,sessions=? 0,nsessions=?
But when I run the maui command checknode it shows:
State: Idle (in current state for 00:10:08)
Configured Resources: PROCS: 8 MEM: 7987M SWAP: 23G DISK: 1M
Utilized Resources: [NONE]
Dedicated Resources: [NONE]
Opsys: linux Arch: [NONE]
Speed: 1.00 Load: 0.000
Classes: [ 8:8]
Total Time: 1:28:56 Up: 1:28:56 (100.00%) Active: 00:11:21 (12.76%)
NOTE: no reservations on node
Does anyone have an idea why maui seems to show slightly less than 8GB
or rather 8000mb?
Is this a problem with maui, or should I be looking at torque instead?
Thanks for your time.
