pbs_submit_workers(1)

NAME

pbs_submit_workers - submit work_queue_worker to a PBS cluster.

SYNOPSIS

pbs_submit_workers [options] <servername> <port> <num-workers>

DESCRIPTION

pbs_submit_workers schedules the execution of work_queue_worker(1) on the PBS batch system through its job submission interface, qsub. The number of work_queue_worker scheduled and run is given by the num-workers argument. 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.

OPTIONS

-M Name of the preferred master for worker.
-N <name>
Preferred project name for work_queue_worker to connect.
-c <cores>
Set the number of cores each worker should use (0=auto). (default=1)
-C <catalog>
Set catalog server for work_queue_worker 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>

-j <>
Use job array to submit workers.
-p <parameters>

On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.

EXAMPLES

Submit 10 worker instances to run on PBS and connect to a specific master:
pbs_submit_workers master.somewhere.edu 9123 10
Submit 10 work_queue_worker instances to run on PBS in auto mode with their preferred project name set to Project_A and abort timeout set to 3600 seconds:
pbs_submit_workers -a -t 3600 -M Project_A 10
