Reuti posted this link again on the users list and it really caught my eye. It really does represent the fastest/easiest way for an SGE admin to set up a basic resource allocation policy that shares resources equally (and automatically) among all users.
It boils down to 2 simple configuration actions:
- Make 2 changes in the main SGE configuration (‘qconf -mconf’):
- enforce_user auto
- auto_user_fshare 100
- Make 1 change in the SGE scheduler configuration (‘qconf -msconf’):
- weight_tickets_functional 10000
