I use Open Grid Scheduler (a fork/copy of Sun Grid Engine).
I have tried this configuration from master:
# qconf -mattr exechost complex_values slots=8 slave2 # qconf -mq all.q | grep slots slots 100,[slave1=1],[slave2=8]
slave1 is down, then I run 10
qsub with a sleep example (so no CPU consumption) but only 4 jobs are run at the same time on slave2 instead of I have put 8 slots.
What does I missed ?
PS: my goal is to provide infinite slots to force SGE to schedule only via consummable ressources.
