sge_submit_workers(1)

NAME

sge_submit_workers - submit work_queue_worker to a SUN Grid Engine (SGE).

SYNOPSIS

****sge_submit_workers [options] <servername> <port> <num-workers>****

when auto mode is not enabled for the worker, or

****sge_submit_workers [options] <num-workers>****

when auto mode is enabled for the worker.

DESCRIPTION

sge_submit_workers schedules the execution of work_queue_worker(1) on the SUN Grid Engine (SGE) 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.

OPTIONS

  • -M --manager-name Name of the preferred manager for worker. (auto mode enabled)
  • -N --name Preferred project name for work_queue_worker to connect. (auto mode enabled)
  • -C --catalog Set catalog server for work_queue_worker to . format: HOSTNAME:PORT.
  • -t --timeout Abort work_queue_worker after this amount of idle time (default=900s).
  • -d --debug Enable debugging on worker for this subsystem (try -d all to start).
  • -w --tcp-window-size Set TCP window size
  • -i --min-backoff Set initial value for backoff interval when worker fails to connect to a manager. (default=1s)
  • -b --max-backoff Set maxmimum value for backoff interval when worker fails to connect to a manager. (default=60s)
  • -z --disk-threshold 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 manager instead of the value in uname.
  • -O --os Set operating system string for the worker to report to manager instead of the value in uname.
  • -s --workdir Set the location for creating the working directory of the worker.
  • -P ----password Password file to authenticate workers to manager.
  • --cores cores Set the number of cores each worker should use (0=auto). (default=1)
  • --memory size Manually set the amonut of memory (in MB) reported by this worker.
  • --disk size Manually set the amount of disk (in MB) reported by this worker.
  • -j Use job array to submit workers.
  • -p parameters SGE qsub parameters.
  • -h,--help Show help message.

EXIT STATUS

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

EXAMPLES

Submit 10 worker instances to run on SGE and connect to a specific manager:

sge_submit_workers manager.somewhere.edu 9123 10

Submit 10 work_queue_worker instances to run on SGE in auto mode with their preferred project name set to Project_A and abort timeout set to 3600 seconds:

sge_submit_workers -a -t 3600 -M Project_A 10
