qconf — Sun Grid Engine Queue Configuration

Syntax

qconf options

Description

Qconf allows the system administrator to add, delete, and modify the current Sun Grid Engine configuration, including queue management, host management, complex management and user management. Qconf also allows you to examine the current queue configuration for existing queues.

Qconf allows the use of the backslash, '\', character at the end of a line to indicate that the next line is a continuation of the current line. When displaying settings, such as the output of one of the -s* options, qconf will break up long lines (lines greater than 80 characters) into smaller lines using backslash line continuation where possible. Lines will only be broken up at commas or whitespace. This feature can be disabled by setting the SGE_SINGLE_LINE environment variable.

Options

Unless denoted otherwise, the following options and the corresponding operations are available to all users with a valid account.

-Aattr obj_spec fname obj_instance,...
<add to object attributes>
Similar to -aattr (see below) but takes specifications for the object attributes to be enhanced from file named fname. As opposed to -aattr, multiple attributes can be enhanced. Their specification has to be enlisted in fname following the file format of the corresponding object (see queue_conf(5) for the queue, for example).
Requires root/manager privileges.
-Acal fname <add calendar>
Adds a new calendar definition to the Sun Grid Engine environment. Calendars are used in Sun Grid Engine for defining availability and unavailability schedules of queues. The format of a calendar definition is described in calendar_conf(5).

The calendar definition is taken from the file fname. Requires root/ manager privileges.

Their specification has to be enlisted in fname following the file format of the corresponding object (see queue_conf(5) for the queue, for example).
Requires root/manager privileges.
-aattr obj_spec attr_name val obj_instance,...
<add to object attributes>

Currently supported objects are the queue, the host, the host group, the parallel environment, the resource quota sets and the checkpointing interface configuration being specified as queue , exechost , hostgroup , pe , rqs or ckpt in obj_spec. For the obj_spec queue the obj_instance can be a cluster queue name, a queue domain name or a queue instance name. Find more information concerning different queue names in sge_types(1). Depending on the type of the obj_instance this adds to the cluster queues attribute sublist the cluster queues implicit default configuration value or the queue domain configuration value or queue instance configuration value. The queue load_thresholds parameter is an example of a list attribute. With the -aattr option, entries can be added to such lists, while they can be deleted with -dattr, modified with -mattr, and replaced with -rattr.
For the obj_spec rqs the obj_instance is a unique identifier for a specific rule. The identifier consists of a rule-set name and either the number of the rule in the list, or the name of the rule, separated by a /
The name of the configuration attribute to be enhanced is specified with attr_name followed by val as a name=value pair. The comma separated list of object instances (e.g., the list of queues) to which the changes have to be applied are specified at the end of the command.
The following restriction applies: For the exechost object the load_values attribute cannot be modified (see host_conf(5)).
Requires root or manager privileges.
-acal calendar_name <add calendar>
Adds a new calendar definition to the Sun Grid Engine environment. Calendars are used in Sun Grid Engine for defining availability and unavailability schedules of queues. The format of a calendar definition is described in calendar_conf(5).

With the calendar name given in the option argument qconf will open a temporary file and start up the text editor indicated by the environment variable EDITOR (default editor is vi(1) if EDITOR is not set). After entering the calendar definition and closing the editor the new calendar is checked and registered with sge_qmaster(8). Requires root/manager privileges.
-ackpt ckpt_name <add ckpt. environment>
Adds a checkpointing environment under the name ckpt_name to the list of checkpointing environments maintained by Sun Grid Engine and to be usable to submit checkpointing jobs (see checkpoint(5) for details on the format of a checkpointing environment definition). Qconf retrieves a default checkpointing environment configuration and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to allow you to customize the checkpointing environment configuration. Upon exit from the editor, the checkpointing environment is registered with sge_qmaster(8). Requires root/manager privileges.
-aconf host,... <add configuration>
Successively adds configurations (see sge_conf(5)) For the hosts in the comma separated file_list. For each host, an editor ($EDITOR indicated or vi(1)) is invoked and the configuration for the host can be entered. The configuration is registered with sge_qmaster(8) after saving the file and quitting the editor.
Requires root or manager privileges.
-ae [host_template] <add execution host>
Adds a host to the list of Sun Grid Engine execution hosts. If a queue is configured on a host this host is automatically added to the Sun Grid Engine execution host list. Adding execution hosts explicitly offers the advantage to be able to specify parameters like load scale values with the registration of the execution host. However, these parameters can be modified (from their defaults) at any later time via the -me option described below.
If the host_template argument is present, qconf retrieves the configuration of the specified execution host from sge_qmaster(8) or a generic template otherwise. The template is then stored in a file and qconf executes vi(1) (or the editor indicated by $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to change the entries in the file. The format of the execution host specification is described in host_conf(5). When the changes are saved in the editor and the editor is quit the new execution host is registered with sge_qmaster(8). Requires root/manager privileges.
-ah hostname,... <add administrative host>
Adds hosts hostname to the Sun Grid Engine trusted host list (a host must be in this list to execute administrative Sun Grid Engine commands, the sole exception to this being the execution of qconf on the sge_qmaster(8) node). The default Sun Grid Engine installation procedures usually add all designated execution hosts (see the -ae option above) to the Sun Grid Engine trusted host list automatically. Requires root or manager privileges.
-ahgrp group <add host group config.>
Adds a new host group with the name specified in group. This command invokes an editor (either vi(1) or the editor indicated by the EDITOR environment variable). The new host group entry is registered after changing the entry and exiting the editor. Requires root or manager privileges.
-arqs [rqs_name] <add new RQS>
Adds one or more Resource Quota Set (RQS) description under the names rqs_name to the list of RQSs maintained by Sun Grid Engine (see sge_resource_quota(5) for details on the format of a RQS definition). Qconf retrieves a default RQS configuration and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to allow you to customize the RQS configuration. Upon exit from the editor, the RQS is registered with sge_qmaster(8). Requires root or manager privileges.
-am user,... <add managers>
Adds the indicated users to the Sun Grid Engine manager list. Requires root or manager privileges.
-ao user,... <add operators>
Adds the indicated users to the Sun Grid Engine operator list. Requires root or manager privileges.
-ap pe_name <add new PE>
Adds a Parallel Environment (PE) description under the name pe_name to the list of PEs maintained by Sun Grid Engine and to be usable to submit parallel jobs (see sge_pe(5) for details on the format of a PE definition). Qconf retrieves a default PE configuration and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to allow you to customize the PE configuration. Upon exit from the editor, the PE is registered with sge_qmaster(8). Requires root/manager privileges.
-at thread_name <activates thread in master>
Activates an additional thread in the master process. thread_name might be either "scheduler" or "jvm". The corresponding thread is only started when it is not already running. There might be only one scheduler and only one jvm thread in the master process at the same time.
-aprj <add new project>
Adds a project description to the list of registered projects (see project(5)). Qconf retrieves a template project configuration and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to allow you to customize the new project. Upon exit from the editor, the template is registered with sge_qmaster(8). Requires root or manager privileges.
-aq [queue_name] <add new queue>
Qconf retrieves the default queue configuration (see queue_conf(5)) and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to allow you to customize the queue configuration. Upon exit from the editor, the queue is registered with sge_qmaster(8). A minimal configuration requires only that the queue name and queue hostlist be set. Requires root or manager privileges.
-as hostname,... <add submit hosts>
Add hosts hostname to the list of hosts allowed to submit Sun Grid Engine jobs and control their behavior only. Requires root or manager privileges.
-astnode node_path=shares,... <add share tree node>

The node_path is a hierarchical path ([/]node_name[[/.]node_name...]) specifying the location of the new node in the share tree. The base name of the node_path is the name of the new node. The node is initialized to the number of specified shares. Requires root or manager privileges.
-astree <add share tree>
Adds the definition of a share tree to the system (see share_tree(5)). A template share tree is retrieved and an editor (either vi(1) or the editor indicated by $EDITOR) is invoked for modifying the share tree definition. Upon exiting the editor, the modified data is registered with sge_qmaster(8). Requires root or manager privileges.

-k{m|s|e[j] {host,...|all}} <shutdown Sun Grid Engine>
Note: The -ks switch is deprecated, may be removed in future release. Please use the -kt switch instead.
Used to shutdown Sun Grid Engine components (daemons). In the form -km sge_qmaster(8) is forced to terminate in a controlled fashion. In the same way the -ks switch causes termination of the scheduler thread. Shutdown of running sge_execd(8) processes currently registered is initiated by the -ke option. If -kej is specified instead, all jobs running on the execution hosts are aborted prior to termination of the corresponding sge_execd(8). The comma separated host list specifies the execution hosts to be addressed by the -ke and -kej option. If the keyword all is specified instead of a host list, all running sge_execd(8) processes are shutdown. Job abortion, initiated by the -kej option will result in dr state for all running jobs until sge_execd(8) is running again.
Requires root or manager privileges.

-sq wc_queue_list <show queues>
Displays one or multiple cluster queues or queue instances. A description of wc_queue_list can be found in sge_types(1).
-sql <show queue list>
Show a list of all currently defined cluster queues.
-ss <show submit hosts>
Displays the Sun Grid Engine submit host list.
-ssconf <show scheduler configuration>
Displays the current scheduler configuration in the format explained in sched_conf(5).
-sstnode node_path,... <show share tree node>
Shows the name and shares of the specified share tree node(s) (see share_tree(5)). The node_path is a hierarchical path ([/]node_name[[/.]node_name...]) specifying the location of a node in the share tree.
-sstree <show share tree>
Shows the definition of the share tree (see share_tree(5)).
-sst <show formatted share tree>
Shows the definition of the share tree in a tree view (see share_tree(5)).
-sss <show scheduler status>
Currently displays the host on which the Sun Grid Engine scheduler is active or an error message if no scheduler is running.
-su acl_name <show user ACL>
Displays a Sun Grid Engine user access list (ACL).
-sul <show user lists>
Displays a list of names of all currently defined Sun Grid Engine user access lists (ACLs).
-suser user,... <show user>
Shows the definition of the specified user(s) (see user(5)).
-suserl <show users>
Shows the list of all currently defined users.
-tsm <trigger scheduler monitoring>
The Sun Grid Engine scheduler is forced by this option to print trace messages of its next scheduling run to the file <sge_root>/<cell>/common/schedd_runlog. The messages indicate the reasons for jobs and queues not being selected in that run. Requires root or manager privileges.

Note, that the reasons for job requirements being invalid with respect to resource availability of queues are displayed using the format as described for the qstat(1) -F option (see description of Full Format in section OUTPUT FORMATS of the qstat(1) manual page.

Environmental Variables

SGE_ROOT
Specifies the location of the Sun Grid Engine standard configuration files.
SGE_CELL

If set, specifies the default Sun Grid Engine cell. To address a Sun Grid Engine cell qconf uses (in the order of precedence):

The name of the cell specified in the environment variable SGE_CELL, if it is set.

The name of the default cell, i.e. default.

SGE_DEBUG_LEVEL
If set, specifies that debug information should be written to stderr. In addition the level of detail in which debug information is generated is defined.
SGE_QMASTER_PORT
If set, specifies the tcp port on which sge_qmaster(8) is expected to listen for communication requests. Most installations will use a services map entry instead to define that port.
SGE_EXECD_PORT
If set, specifies the tcp port on which sge_execd(8) is expected to listen for communication requests. Most installations will use a services map entry instead to define that port.
SGE_SINGLE_LINE
If set, indicates that long lines should not be broken up using backslashes. This setting is useful for scripts which expect one entry per line.

Restrictions

Modifications to a queue configuration do not affect an active queue, taking effect on next invocation of the queue (i.e., the next job).

Files
