We have just recently aquired an Altix 4700 and are interested in working on
some means to enable SGI Propack 5 cpuset support. As I understand it, the
latest stable Torque release only works correctly when used in conjunction
with the older Propack 3 cpusets. Is there anyone currently working on
enabling Propack 5 support? It will be likely near the end of August before
we can start working on anything seriously, and the ETA after beginning
would be in the 6 month range.
Torque devs, what do you think about this?
Lastly, a few things I noticed while looking through the code. It seems to
me that the API for Propack 5 is vastly different for that of Propack 3.
This leads me to believe that to support Propack 5, we'd be looking at some
sort of #define PENABLE_DYNAMIC_CPUSETS_P5 situation whereby support for the
older and newer versions of Propack could be simultaneously maintained. Is
this far off base?
Thanks and best regards,
