We are having a training workshop over the course of 3 days and I want to set a recurring reservation. I executed the following command which ran successfully:
pbs_rsub -N SDL_Workshop -R 202210040800 -E 202210042000 -G SDL_Workshop -r "FREQ=DAILY;COUNT=3" -l select=450
What is not clear to me is if it is actually going to recur or if it is just one day. If I do a
pbs_rstat -f I see the following (trimmed) output:
allcock@polaris-login-02:~/pbs/hooks> pbs_rstat -f S330213 Resv ID: S330213.polaris-pbs-01.hsn.cm.polaris.alcf.anl.gov Reserve_Name = SDL_Workshop Reserve_Owner = email@example.com reserve_state = RESV_CONFIRMED reserve_substate = 2 reserve_start = Tue Oct 04 08:00:00 2022 reserve_end = Tue Oct 04 20:00:00 2022 reserve_duration = 43200 queue = S330213 <snip> reserve_rrule = FREQ=DAILY;COUNT=3 reserve_index = 1 reserve_count = 3
The reserve_end is on the first day and the duration is only 12 hours, but there are those three lines about the recurrence. It just isn’t 100% clear to me that I got what I wanted. If someone has ever done this and could confirm that I will get what I want which is three reservations of 12 hours each over three consecutive days that would be very helpful.
BTW, none of the examples in the documentation include a date. That might be a nice addition.
