NAME

       qconf - Grid Engine Queue Configuration

SYNTAX

       qconf options

DESCRIPTION

       Qconf  allows  the system administrator to add, delete, and modify the current Grid Engine
       configuration, including queue management, host management, complex  management  and  user
       management.  Qconf also allows you to examine the current queue configuration for existing
       queues.

       Qconf allows the use of the backslash, '\', character at the end of  a  line  to  indicate
       that  the next line is a continuation of the current line.  When displaying settings, such
       as the output of one of the -s* options, qconf will break up  long  lines  (lines  greater
       than  80  characters) into smaller lines using backslash line continuation where possible.
       Lines will only be broken up at commas or whitespace.  This feature  can  be  disabled  by
       setting the SGE_SINGLE_LINE environment variable.

OPTIONS

       Unless  denoted  otherwise,  the  following  options  and the corresponding operations are
       available to all users with a valid account.

       -Aattr obj_spec fname obj_instance,...
                                     <add to object attributes>
              Similar to -aattr (see below) but takes specifications for the object attributes to
              be enhanced from file named fname. As opposed to -aattr, multiple attributes can be
              enhanced. Their specification has to be listed in fname following the  file  format
              of the corresponding object (see queue_conf(5) for the queue, for example).
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Acal fname                   <add calendar>
              Adds  a new calendar definition to the Grid Engine environment.  Calendars are used
              in Grid Engine for defining availability and unavailability  schedules  of  queues.
              The format of a calendar definition is described in calendar_conf(5).

              The  calendar  definition  is  taken  from the file fname. Requires root or manager
              privileges.

       -Ackpt fname                  <add checkpointing environment>
              Add the checkpointing environment as defined in fname (see  checkpoint(5))  to  the
              list of supported checkpointing environments.  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Aconf fname_list             <add configurations>
              Add  the  configurations  (see  sge_conf(5))  specified  in the files in the comma-
              separated fname_list. The configuration is added for the host that is identical  to
              the file name.
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Ae fname                     <add execution host>
              Add  the  execution host defined in fname to the Grid Engine cluster. The format of
              the execution host specification is described in host_conf(5).   Requires  root  or
              manager privileges.

       -Ahgrp fname                  <add host group configuration>
              Add  the  host  group configuration defined in file.  The file format of fname must
              comply with the  format  specified  in  hostgroup(5).   Requires  root  or  manager
              privileges.

       -Arqs fname                   <add RQS configuration>

              Adds  the  project  description defined in fname to the list of registered projects
              (see project(5)).  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Aq fname                     <add new queue>
              Add the queue defined in fname to the Grid Engine cluster. Requires root or manager
              privileges.

       -Au fname                     <add an ACL>
              Add the user access list (ACL) defined in file fname to Grid Engine. User lists are
              used  for  queue  usage  authentication.  Requires  root,  manager,   or   operator
              privileges.   The  file  format  of  fname must comply with the format specified in
              access_list(5).

       -Dattr obj_spec fname obj_instance,...
                                     <del. from object attribs>
              Similar to -dattr (see below) but the definition of the list attributes from  which
              entries  are  to  be  deleted  is  contained in the file named fname. As opposed to
              -dattr, multiple attributes can be modified. Their specification has to  be  listed
              in  fname  following the file format of the corresponding object (see queue_conf(5)
              for the queue, for example).

                                     <mod. object attributes>
              Similar to -mattr (see below) but takes specifications for the object attributes to
              be modified from file named fname. As opposed to -mattr, multiple attributes can be
              modified. Their specification has to be listed in fname following the  file  format
              of the corresponding object (see queue_conf(5) for the queue, for example).
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Mc fname                     <modify complex>
              Overwrites the complex configuration with the contents of fname.  The argument file
              must comply with the format specified in  complex(5).   Requires  root  or  manager
              privileges.

       -Mcal fname                   <modify calendar>
              Overwrites  the  calendar  definition as specified in fname. The argument file must
              comply with the format described in calendar_conf(5).   Requires  root  or  manager
              privileges.

       -Mckpt fname                  <modify ckpt. environment>
              Overwrite  an existing checkpointing environment with the definitions in fname (see
              checkpoint(5)).  The name attribute in fname has to match an existing checkpointing
              environment. Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Mconf fname_list             <modify configurations>
              Modify  the  configurations  (see sge_conf(5)) specified in the files in the comma-
              separated fname_list. The configuration is modified for the host that is  identical
              to the file name.
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Me fname                     <modify execution host>
              Overwrites  the  execution  host  configuration  for  the  specified  host with the
              contents of fname, which must comply  with  the  format  defined  in  host_conf(5).
              Requires root or manager privilege.

       -Mhgrp fname                  <modify host group configuration>
              Allows changing the host group configuration with a single command.  All host group
              configuration entries contained in fname will be applied. Configuration entries not
              contained  in  fname  will  be deleted. The file format of fname must comply to the
              format specified in hostgroup(5).  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Mrqs fname [mrqs_name]       <modify RQS configuration>
              Same as -mrqs (see below) but instead of invoking  an  editor  to  modify  the  RQS
              configuration, the file fname is considered to contain a changed configuration. The
              name of the rule set in fname must be the same as rqs_name. If rqs_name is not set,
              all   rule   sets   are   overwritten   by   the   rule  sets  in  fname  Refer  to
              sge_resource_quota(5) for details on the RQS configuration format.   Requires  root
              or manager privileges.

       -Mp fname                     <modify PE configuration>
              Same  as  -mp  (see  below)  but  instead  of  invoking  an editor to modify the PE
              configuration the file fname is considered  to  contain  a  changed  configuration.
              Refer  to  sge_pe(5)  for details on the PE configuration format.  Requires root or
              manager privilege.

       -Mprj fname                   <modify project configuration>
              Same as -mprj (see below) but instead of invoking an editor to modify  the  project
              configuration  the  file  fname  is  considered to contain a changed configuration.
              Refer to project(5) for details on the project configuration format.  Requires root
              or manager privilege.

       -Mq fname                     <modify queue configuration>
              Same  as  -mq  (see  below)  but  instead of invoking an editor to modify the queue
              configuration the file fname is considered  to  contain  a  changed  configuration.
              Refer  to  queue_conf(5)  for  details on the queue configuration format.  Requires
              root or manager privilege.

       -Msconf fname                 <modify scheduler configuration from fname>
              The current scheduler configuration (see  sched_conf(5))  is  overridden  with  the
              configuration specified in the file.  Requires root or manager privilege.

       -Mstree fname                 <modify share tree>
              Modifies  the  definition  of  the  share  tree  (see share_tree(5)).  The modified
              sharetree is read from file fname.  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Mu fname                     <modify ACL>
              Takes the user access list (ACL) defined in fname to  overwrite  any  existing  ACL
              with  the  same  name.  See access_list(5) for information on the ACL configuration
              format. Requires root or manager privilege.

       -Muser fname                  <modify user>
              Modify the user defined in fname in the Grid Engine cluster. The format of the user
              specification is described in user(5).  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -Rattr obj_spec fname obj_instance,...
                                     <replace object attribs>
              Similar  to  -rattr  (see  below)  but  the definition of the list attributes whose
              content is to be replaced is contained in the  file  named  fname.  As  opposed  to
              -rattr,  multiple  attributes can be modified. Their specification has to be listed
              in fname following the file format of the corresponding object  (see  queue_conf(5)
              for the queue, for example).
              Requires root/manager privileges.

       -aattr obj_spec attr_name val obj_instance,...
                                     <add to object attributes>
              Allows  adding  specifications to a single configuration list attribute in multiple
              instances of an object with a single command.  Currently supported object types are
              queues,  hosts,  host  groups,  parallel  environments, resource quota sets, users,
              projects,  calendars,  and  checkpointing   interface   configurations,   specified
              respectively  as  queue,  exechost,  hostgroup,  pe, resource_quota, user, project,
              calender, userset, or ckpt in obj_spec.  For the obj_spec  queue  the  obj_instance
              can  be  a  cluster  queue name, a queue domain name or a queue instance name. Find
              more information concerning different queue names in  sge_types(5).   Depending  on
              the type of the obj_instance, this adds to the cluster queues attribute sublist the
              cluster  queue's  implicit  default  configuration  value  or  the   queue   domain
              configuration   value   or   queue   instance   configuration   value.   The  queue
              load_thresholds parameter is an example  of  a  list  attribute.  With  the  -aattr
              option,  entries can be added to such lists, while they can be deleted with -dattr,
              modified with -mattr, and replaced with -rattr.
              For the obj_spec rqs the obj_instance is a unique identifier for a  specific  rule.
              The identifier consists of a rule-set name and either the number of the rule in the
              list, or the name of the rule, separated by a "/".
              The name of the configuration attribute to be enhanced is specified with  attr_name
              followed  by val as a name=value pair. The space-separated list of object instances
              (e.g., the list of queues) to which the changes have to be applied are specified at
              the end of the command.
              The  following  restriction  applies:  For  the  exechost  object  the  load_values
              attribute cannot be modified (see host_conf(5)).
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -acal calendar_name           <add calendar>
              Adds a new calendar definition to the Grid Engine environment.  Calendars are  used
              in  Grid  Engine  for defining availability and unavailability schedules of queues.
              The format of a calendar definition is described in calendar_conf(5).

              With the calendar name given in the option argument, qconf will  open  a  temporary
              file  and  start  up  the  text editor indicated by the environment variable EDITOR
              (default vi(1) if EDITOR is not set). After entering the  calendar  definition  and
              closing  the editor the new calendar is checked and registered with sge_qmaster(8).
              Requires root/manager privileges.

       -ackpt ckpt_name              <add checkpointing environment>
              Adds  a  checkpointing  environment  under  the  name  ckpt_name  to  the  list  of
              checkpointing  environments  maintained  by  Grid Engine and to be usable to submit
              checkpointing jobs (see checkpoint(5) for details on the format of a  checkpointing
              environment  definition).   Qconf  retrieves  a  default  checkpointing environment
              configuration and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable  is
              set)  to  allow  you to customize the checkpointing environment configuration. Upon
              exit  from  the  editor,  the  checkpointing   environment   is   registered   with
              sge_qmaster(8).  Requires root/manager privileges.

       -aconf host,...               <add configuration>
              Successively  adds  configurations  (see  sge_conf(5))  For the hosts in the comma-
              separated host list.  For each host, an editor ($EDITOR, if defined, or  vi(1))  is
              invoked  and  the  configuration  for the host can be entered. The configuration is
              registered with sge_qmaster(8) after saving the file and quitting the editor.
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -ae [host_template]           <add execution host>
              Adds a host to the list of Grid Engine execution hosts. If a queue is configured on
              a  host  this  host  is automatically added to the Grid Engine execution host list.
              Adding execution hosts explicitly offers  the  advantage  to  be  able  to  specify
              parameters  like  load  scale  values  with the registration of the execution host.
              However, these parameters can be modified (from their defaults) at any  later  time
              via the -me option described below.
              If  the host_template argument is present, qconf retrieves the configuration of the
              specified execution host from sge_qmaster(8) or a generic template otherwise.   The
              template is then stored in a file and qconf executes vi(1) (or the editor indicated
              by $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to change the entries in  the
              file.  The format of the execution host specification is described in host_conf(5).
              When the changes are saved in the editor and the editor is quit the  new  execution
              host is registered with sge_qmaster(8).  Requires root/manager privileges.

       -ah hostname,...              <add administrative host>
              Adds  hosts  hostname  to the Grid Engine trusted host list (a host must be in this
              list to execute administrative Grid Engine commands, the  sole  exception  to  this
              being  the  execution of qconf on the sge_qmaster(8) node). The default Grid Engine
              installation procedures usually add all designated execution  hosts  (see  the  -ae
              option above) to the Grid Engine trusted host list automatically.  Requires root or
              manager privileges.

       -ahgrp group                  <add host group configuration>
              Adds a new host group with the name specified in group.  This  command  invokes  an
              editor  (either  vi(1) or the editor indicated by the EDITOR environment variable).
              The new host group entry is registered after changing the  entry  and  exiting  the
              editor.  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -arqs [rqs_name]              <add new RQS>
              Adds  one  or more Resource Quota Set (RQS) description under the names rqs_name to
              the list of RQSs maintained by Grid Engine. (See sge_resource_quota(5) for  details
              on  the  format of an RQS definition.)  Qconf retrieves a default RQS configuration
              and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable is set) to  allow
              you  to  customize  the  RQS  configuration.  Upon exit from the editor, the RQS is
              registered with sge_qmaster(8).  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -am user,...                  <add managers>
              Adds the indicated users to the Grid Engine manager list. Requires root or  manager
              privileges.
              Managers  have  full  access  to  the  Grid  Engine  configuration  and operational
              features.  Superusers on administration hosts have manager privileges by default.

       -ao user,...                  <add operators>
              Adds the indicated users to the  Grid  Engine  operator  list.   Requires  root  or
              manager privileges.
              Operators  have  the  same  privileges  as  managers  except  that they cannot make
              configuration changes.

       -ap pe_name                   <add new PE>
              Adds a Parallel Environment (PE) description under the name pe_name to the list  of
              PEs  maintained  by  Grid  Engine  and  to  be  usable to submit parallel jobs (see
              sge_pe(5) for details on the format of a PE definition).  Qconf retrieves a default
              PE  configuration and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if the EDITOR environment variable
              is set) to allow you to customize the PE configuration. Upon exit from the  editor,
              the PE is registered with sge_qmaster(8).  Requires root/manager privileges.

       -at thread_name <activates thread in master>
              Activates  an  additional  thread in the master process.  thread_name can be either
              "scheduler" or "jvm". The corresponding thread is  only  started  when  it  is  not
              already  running.  There  may  be only one scheduler and only one JVM thread in the
              master process at the same time.

       -aprj                         <add new project>
              Adds a project description to the list of  registered  projects  (see  project(5)).
              Qconf  retrieves a template project configuration and executes vi(1) (or $EDITOR if
              the EDITOR environment variable is set) to allow you to customize the new  project.
              Upon  exit  from  the  editor,  the  template  is  registered  with sge_qmaster(8).
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -aq [queue_name]              <add new queue>
              Qconf retrieves the default queue configuration (see  queue_conf(5))  and  executes
              vi(1)  (or  $EDITOR  if  the  EDITOR  environment  variable is set) to allow you to
              customize the queue  configuration.  Upon  exit  from  the  editor,  the  queue  is
              registered  with  sge_qmaster(8).   A  minimal configuration requires only that the
              queue name and queue hostlist be set.  Requires root or manager privileges.

              location  of the new node in the share tree.  The base name of the node_path is the
              name of the new node.  The node is initialized to the number of  specified  shares.
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -astree                       <add share tree>
              Adds  the definition of a share tree to the system (see share_tree(5)).  A template
              share tree is retrieved and an editor (either vi(1)  or  the  editor  indicated  by
              $EDITOR)  is  invoked  for  modifying  the  share tree definition. Upon exiting the
              editor, the modification is  registered  with  sge_qmaster(8).   Requires  root  or
              manager privileges.

       -k{m|s|e[j] {host,...|all}}   <shutdown Grid Engine>
              Note: The -ks switch is deprecated and may be removed in  future  release.   Please
              use the -kt switch instead.
              Used  to shutdown Grid Engine components (daemons).  In the form -km sge_qmaster(8)
              is forced to terminate in a controlled fashion. In the  same  way  the  -ks  switch
              causes  termination  of  the  scheduler  thread.   Shutdown of running sge_execd(8)
              processes currently registered is initiated by the -ke option. If -kej is specified
              instead,  all  jobs running on the execution hosts are aborted prior to termination
              of the corresponding sge_execd(8).  The comma-separated  host  list  specifies  the
              execution  hosts  to be addressed by the -ke and -kej option. If the keyword all is
              specified instead of a host list, all running sge_execd(8) processes are  shutdown.
              Job  abortion, initiated by the -kej option will result in dr state for all running
              jobs until sge_execd(8) is running again.
              Requires root or manager privileges.

       -kt thread_name   <terminate master thread>
              Terminates a thread in the master  process.  Currently  it  is  only  supported  to
              shutdown  the "scheduler" and the "jvm" thread. The command will only be successful
              if the corresponding thread is running.

       -kec {id,...|all}             <kill event client>
              Used to shutdown event clients registered at sge_qmaster(8).   The  comma-separated
              event  client  list specifies the event clients to be addressed by the -kec option.
              If the keyword all is specified instead of an event client list, all running  event
              clients  except special clients like the scheduler thread are terminated.  Requires
              root or manager privilege.

       -mattr obj_spec attr_name val obj_instance,...

              editor (either vi(1) or the editor indicated by the EDITOR environment variable) is
              invoked  for  modifying  the  host  group configuration. By closing the editor, the
              modification is  registered.   The  format  of  the  host  group  configuration  is
              described in hostgroup(5).  Requires root or manager privileges.

       -mrqs [rqs_name]              <modify RQS configuration>

       -purge queue attr_nm,... obj_spec
                                     <purge divergent attribute settings>
              Delete  the  values of the attributes defined in attr_nm from the object defined in
              obj_spec. obj_spec can be "queue_instance" or "queue_domain".   The  names  of  the
              attributes are described in queue_conf(5).
              This  operation only works on a single queue instance or domain.  It cannot be used
              on a cluster queue.  In the case where  the  obj_spec  is  "queue@@hostgroup",  the
              attribute  values  defined in attr_nm which are set for the indicated hostgroup are
              deleted, but not those which are set for the hosts contained by that hostgroup.  If
              the attr_nm is '*', all attribute values set for the given queue instance or domain
              are deleted.
              The main difference between -dattr and -purge is that -dattr removes a value from a
              single  list  attribute,  whereas  -purge  removes one or more overriding attribute
              settings from a cluster queue configuration.  With -purge, the entire attribute  is
              deleted for the given queue instance or queue domain.

              When "queue_domain" or "queue_instance" is specified as obj_spec, matching is  only
              done  with  the  attribute  overridings  concerning the host group or the execution
              host. In this case queue domain names resp. queue instances are returned.

              attr_name can be any of the configuration file keywords listed in queue_conf(5)  or
              host_conf(5).  Also wildcards can be used to match multiple attributes.

              val can be an arbitrary string or a wildcard expression.

       -tsm                          <trigger scheduler monitoring>
              The Grid Engine scheduler is forced by this option to print trace messages  of  its
              next  scheduling  run  to  the  file  <sge_root>/<cell>/common/schedd_runlog.   The
              messages indicate the reasons for jobs and queues not being selected in  that  run.
              Requires root or manager privileges.

              Note,  that the reasons for job requirements being invalid with respect to resource
              availability of queues are displayed using the format as described for the qstat(1)
              -F option (see description of Full Format in section OUTPUT FORMATS of the qstat(1)
              manual page.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       SGE_ROOT       Specifies the location of the Grid Engine standard configuration files.

       SGE_CELL       If set, specifies the default Grid Engine cell. To address  a  Grid  Engine
                      cell qconf uses (in the order of precedence):

                             The name of the cell specified in the environment variable SGE_CELL,
                             if it is set.

                             The name of the default cell, i.e. default.

       SGE_DEBUG_LEVEL
                      If set, specifies that debug information should be written  to  stderr.  In
                      addition  the  level  of  detail in which debug information is generated is
                      defined.

       SGE_QMASTER_PORT
                      If set, specifies the tcp port  on  which  sge_qmaster(8)  is  expected  to
                      listen  for communication requests.  Most installations will use a services
                      map entry instead to define that port.

       SGE_EXECD_PORT If set, specifies the tcp port on which sge_execd(8) is expected to  listen
                      for  communication  requests.   Most  installations will use a services map
                      entry instead to define that port.

       SGE_SINGLE_LINE
                      If  set,  indicates  that  long  lines  should  not  be  broken  up   using
                      backslashes.  This setting is useful for scripts which expect one entry per
                      line.

RESTRICTIONS

       Modifications to a queue configuration do not affect an active  queue,  taking  effect  on
       next invocation of the queue (i.e., the next job).

FILES

       <sge_root>/<cell>/common/act_qmaster
                       Grid Engine master host file
