qsched(1) Grid Engine User Commands qsched(1)


qsched, process-scheduler-log - show scheduling information on resource reservation


qsched [-u user|--user=user] [-a|--all] [-j jid_list|--jid=jid_list] [-f|--full] [-s j|--sort=j] [-q|--queues] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help]
process-scheduler-log [-v]


qsched reports resources being reserved for jobs on the basis of the schedule file, which is processed by process-scheduler-log, which runs continuously. Generating schedule requires setting MONITOR=1 in the params parameter of the scheduler (see sched_conf(5)).

process-scheduler-log should simply be started in the background as it does not currently daemonize itself. Alternatively, it could be run under daemonize(1), or adapted to run as a global load sensor (see sge_execd(8)). It needs SGE_ROOT and SGE_CELL set in the environment when it starts.

qsched and process-scheduler-log both potentially need editing to configure for the local installation, particularly the definition of $trim_string in qsched.
