|Subject: [torqueusers] User's job can mess up the system so
|that no jobs run
|I suppose this does not happen that often, since it's the
|first time in several years of using openPBS and then Torque
|that it has happened on my system ...
|One user submitted a malformed job of some kind that kept
|echoing a string to stdout. Eventually it filled up the disk
|partition containing /var/spool/torque . This happened on
|node01 (the first node in the list of available nodes)
|Subsequently, all users' jobs failed to run or return any
|stdout or stderr files, thus making it difficult to tell what
|the problem actually was. That's because the jobs were always
|getting directed to node01 as it was marked 'free'.
|Is there a good way within torque to prevent this behaviour?
|Apart from banning certain users that is!
