glite-TORQUE_utils - Update to version 3.2.1-0

Date 07.01.2010
Priority Normal


glite-TORQUE_server, glite-TORQUE_client, glite-TORQUE_utils

Introduction of the glite-TORQUE_utils and glite-TORQUE_server metapackages for gLite 3.2

This update introduces the complete Torque (version 2.3.6) and Maui (version 3.2.6p21) for gLite 3.2 and updates the also the Torque clients. Note that Torque server and client versions have to be the same for a proper setup. Keep this in mind for the case of mixed SL4/SL5 Torque installations.

The most relevant new features are:

  • kill_delay has been increased to 10 in the Torque server.
  • ssh configuration has been updated in Torque client.
  • maui configuration can be now disabled in YAIM. Torque infoproviders now also populate GlueCEPolicyAssignedJobSlots for the GlueCE.
New YAIM variables:
  • CONFIG_MAUI: By default is 'yes'. Set it to 'no' if you want to disable the maui configuration in YAIM.
  • APEL_MYSQL_HOST: By default is MON_HOST. Change this value if the host where the APEL MySQL DB is installed in a different place than the MON_HOST. Bear in mind that in case you use the default value, which is MON_HOST, but MON_HOST is not defined in site-info.def, YAIM will complain APEL_MYSQL_HOST is not defined.
  • CONFIG_TORQUE_NODES: Set it to 'no' if you want to disable the /var/spool/pbs/server_priv/nodes configuration in YAIM.
This update fixes various bugs. For the full list of bugs, please see list below.
