I’m adding nodes to PBS while a job is waiting. Once the nodes are coming online, the job is not automatically started. If I do submit another job, the first one starts immediately, meaning the node config is fine. Is there a way to force PBS to rescan the jobs in the queue to nodes and avoid having a delay before the job starts?
try manually triggering a scheduling cycle after the nodes come online:
qmgr -c ‘set server scheduling=true’
Also, you can decrease the scheduler iteration to 60 seconds , every 60 seconds it will initiate a scheduling cycle
qmgr -c "set server scheduler_iteration = 60"
Value: 60 seconds
