  • Add process monitoring and process cancellation mechanism on the interactive node

Start process monitoring on the interactive nodes

Process monitoring started on the interactive nodes. High load or lengthy tasks on the interactive nodes will be killed by the process monitoring system, so use the compute nodes with the qrsh/qsub command.

Change the job submission and execution limits

We changed the job submission and execution limits as follows.

Limitations Current limits Previous limits
The maximum number of tasks within an array job 75000 1000
The maximum number of any user's running jobs at the same time 200 0(unlimited)

About known issues

The status of following known issues were changed to close.

  • A comupte node can execute only up to 2 jobs each resource type "rt_G.small" and "rt_C.small" (normally up to 4 jobs ).

User/Group/Job names are now masked when displaying the result of 'qstat'

We changed the job scheduler configuration, so that User/Group/Job names are masked from the result of qstat command. These columns are shown only for your own jobs, otherwise these columns are masked by '*'. An example follows:

[username@es1 ~]$ qstat -u '*' | head
job-ID     prior   name       user         state submit/start at     queue                          jclass                         slots ja-task-ID
