Faireshare entity / User


I am able to run jobs with my user account (saf112092). When I list the faireshare usage using pbsfs, my user does not appear:

Previously I created a HPC using PBSPro. I am surprised that there is no pbs_login. Does that means users never have to login? Is this related to the problem above?


Please refer this document on PBS Pro fairshare

Please set your scheduler iteration to 30 seconds
qmgr : set server scheduler_iteration=30
Also, please share your sched_config file : $PBS_HOME/sched_priv/sched_config

set server scheduler_iteration is set at 15.

I found a problem:

in sched_config i set two fairshare_usage_res because I have 2 pools of abaqus licenses one for europe one for latin america:
fairshare_usage_res: cputpow(lic_abaqus_q,5)
fairshare_usage_res: cput

When printing fairshare usage qith pbsfs, the first line shows the second fairshare usage. Right now nobody is using it since I am in europe and I am the only user (testing and building the HPC).

This is probably why I do not appear.

I will try this:
fairshare_usage_res: cputpow(lic_abaqus_q,5) + cputpow(lic_abaqus_q_latam,5)

Keep you in touch

Yes it works fine BUT be careful, there should not be any space in the formula like in my previous post. Here is the right way to do it:

fairshare_usage_res: cputpow(lic_abaqus_q,5)+cput pow(lic_abaqus_q_latam,5)

[root@ip-0A582E84 ~]# pbsfs
Fairshare usage units are in: cputpow(lic_abaqus_q,5)+cputpow(lic_abaqus_q_latam,5)
