UPDATE - PBS-ALPS Inventory Check exechost_periodic

Recommended Posts

Updating the pbs-alps-inventory-check.py exechost_periodic hook that is distributed with the PBS binaries. There was a flaw with the distributed version of the hook whereby the PBSFREE count was _ALWAYS_ larger than the ALPSFREE count. This was due to the way the PBS vnodes were counted: a vnode on a Cray represents a NUMA node, therefore there could be 2 or 4 vnodes for each compute node. 


Until the updated hook is incorporated into the distribution of PBS Professional binaries, this topic will host the DOC, XLS, and PY script




The DOC explains the requirements, assumption, caveats, and illustrates the implementation details of the hook.

The XLS illustrates how the hook will behave if there a multiple PBS MOM cray_login nodes. 

The PY is the updated hook.


Let me know if you have any issues!
