Power saving settings in PBS


I would like to power off compute nodes when no jobs are running on a Linux system using PBS Pro.
We want the compute nodes to start only when a job is dispatched and turn off after the job is executed.
The compute node has a generic PMI interface and can be accessed by specifying its IP address with ipmitool.
The manual describes how to configure Cray XC and HPE, but there is no description of how to configure generic PMI interface.
The PBS_power hook described in the manual doesn’t seem to do it, but is there a power hook for generic PMI interface?


The customisation that you are aiming for and the hooks responsible for this kind of workflow needs to be created for the generic ipmitool, there is no hook available at the moment.

No there isnt one.

Thank you
