Is there something wrong in this procedure to set up a torque queue with
resources_max.ncpus = some_number
acl_host_enable = False
acl_hosts = some_node_list
Neither seems to have any effects whatsoever in my installation of
torque-2.1.6 runing on a linux cluster with centOS 4.4.
In other words, users can still submit jobs to that queue without any
I thought that maybe upgrading torque would improve things, so a downloaded,
compiled and installed torque-2.3.0, but things got even worse: all processes
of a job got concentrated on the first available node rather than scatter as
required by the #PBS -l nodes=.... instruction in the submit script.
So I backgraded to torque-2.1.6 and tried to put in maui, which seems to
provide better control anyway. This time the problems were in the integration:
maui was not recognized as the scheduler by the pbs-server.
In this case I tried to follow the instructions in the Maui-PBS
Integration Guide, but probably missed something.
So this is it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
