PBS Pro Community Forum Link: http://community.pbspro.org/t/pp-289-unique-job-ids-up-to-1-trillion/465

Currently the largest possible Job ID which PBS can hold is "9999999". Which is a bit low for sites submitting lot of jobs. With new enhancement the largest possible Job ID that PBS would now hold will be "999999999999". Thus the range will be (0 to 999999999999) with a total of 1 trillion unique job IDs. 

  • Interface 1: Qstat output
    • Visibility: Public
    • Change Control: Stable
    • Details: As PBS_MAXSEQNUM changed from 7 to 12 to support 1 trillion sequence id, so qstat output's header also got changed to adjust spaces between two field (see below space between "Job id" and "Name" field and also count of '-' in next line)
        • Previous output was:
          • Job id            Name             User              Time Use S Queue
            ----------------  ---------------- ----------------  -------- - -----
            1.vision          STDIN            pbsuser1          00:00:00 R workq 
        • New output will be:
          • Job id                 Name             User              Time Use S Queue
            ---------------------  ---------------- ----------------  -------- - -----
            1.vision               STDIN            pbsuser1          00:00:00 R workq 

 


Limitation: With this implementation the maximum length of Job name (PBS_MAXJOBNAME) will be limited to 230 character wide.
