glite-CE - Update to version 2.4.25-0

Date 06.03.07
Priority Normal


This update fixes various bugs and updates Torque (2.1.6-1cri_sl3_2st) and Maui ( 3.2.6p17-1_sl3)For the full list of bugs, please see list below.

Important update note:

When upgrading to these packages from torque < 1.1 including the current LCG/EGEE deployed release your farm must be drained of all jobs!

The database format for the jobs maintained by pbs_server has changed. To close the queue and to drain it, you need to login to the Torque server and run

  qmgr -c "set queue dteam enabled = False"

This is to close dteam queue and drain, for other queues, please change dteam to its name.

Always make a backup of your pbs_server configuration.

  # qmgr -c 'print server' > qmgr-backup.conf

There is no change to the default behavior of scheduling that is deployed for LCG.

However the configuration option


is now supported. The optional extra % enables a FS calculation of (1 - used/allocated) as opposed to the old (allocated - used).

Please also have a look at the list of known issues.
