ec2_submit_workers - submit and run work_queue_worker on the Amazon EC2 service.
ec2_submit_workers [options] <servername> <port> <EC2-key-name> <EC2-key-file> <num-workers>
ec2_submit_workers submits and runs work_queue_worker(1) on the Amazon EC2 service.
It calls EC2-run-instances and EC2-describe-instances that are part of the EC2 API tools to
create EC2 instances and run work_queue_worker on them. The number of EC2 instances created is
given by the num-workers argument since each instance runs one work_queue_worker.
The servername and port arguments specify the hostname and port number of the master
for the work_queue_worker to connect. These two arguments become optional when the auto mode
option is specified for work_queue_worker. The EC2-key-name argument specifies the name of the
key to use in authenticating to the EC2 service. The EC2-key-file gives the path of the file
containing the (private) key.
| -M ||Name of the preferred master for worker.
| -N <name>|
|Same as -M (backwards compatibility).
| -c <cores>|
|Set the number of cores each worker should use (0=auto). (default=1)
| -C <catalog>|
|Set catalog server to . format: HOSTNAME:PORT.
| -t <seconds>|
|Abort work_queue_worker after this amount of idle time (default=900s).
| -d <subsystem>|
|Enable debugging on worker for this subsystem (try -d all to start).
| -w <size>|
|Set TCP window size
| -i <time>|
|Set initial value for backoff interval when worker fails to connect to a master. (default=1s)
| -b <time>|
|Set maxmimum value for backoff interval when worker fails to connect to a master. (default=60s)
| -z <size>|
|Set available disk space threshold (in MB). When exceeded worker will clean up and reconnect. (default=100MB)
| -A <arch>|
|Set architecture string for the worker to report to master instead of the value in uname.
| -O <os>|
|Set operating system string for the worker to report to master instead of the value in uname.
| -s <path>|
|Set the location for creating the working directory of the worker.
| -I <image_id>|
|EC2 OS image ID. Default = ami-fa01f193 (Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64).
| -Z <instance_size>|
|EC2 instance size. Default = m1.large.
| -p <parameters>|
| -h ||Show help message.
On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.
Submit 10 work_queue_worker instances to run on EC2 service using key_1 as the authentication key
whose private key string is found in key_1.priv. Run work_queue_worker in auto mode with the
preferred project name set to Project_A and abort timeout set to 3600 seconds:
ec2_submit_workers -a -t 3600 -M Project_A key_1 key_1.priv 10
