PP-732 - Getting issue details... STATUS


  • Using placement sets it is created a pool of nodes with unset resource. When scheduler tries to run a job, it considers to fit a job into this pool. The value of unset resource is "\"\"". A new parameter allows to control whether or not this pool is created.

Interface 1: only_explicit_psets

  • Visibility: Public
  • Change Control: stable
  • Synopsis: scheduler attribute; attribute can control creation of pool of nodes with unset resource in placement sets
  • Details: Scheduler attribute. Specifies whether or not the scheduler creates a pool of nodes with unset resource in placement sets. Default value is False
    • Set to False means: The behavior is unchanged. The pool with unset resource is created. If you use placement sets, scheduler creates pools of nodes: one pool per value and one pool for nodes with unset value. The scheduler tries to fit a job into the pools from the smallest one to the largest one. 
    • Set to True means: The pool with unset resource is NOT created and the nodes with unset resources are skipped in this placement set.
  • Example:
    • create resource infiniband
      set resource infiniband type = string
      set resource infiniband flag = h
      set node n1 infiniband = A
      set node n2 infiniband = B
      unset node n3 infiniband

      set sched do_not_span_psets = True
      set sched only_explicit_psets = True

      $ qsub -l place=group=infiniband
      The job can run on n1 or n2 but will never run on n3 with 'only_explicit_psets = True'.
