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 manager for the work_queue_worker to connect. These two arguments become optional when the auto mode option is specified for work_queue_worker.
