Qrsub provides a means for operators, managers or users referenced in
the ACL (see access_list(5)) "arusers" to create a Advance Reservation
(AR) in the Sun Grid Engine queuing system. ARs allow to reserve
particular consumable resources for future use. These reserved
resources are only available for jobs requesting the AR and the
scheduler ensures the availability of the resources when the start time
is reached. Job requesting the AR can only use the reserved consumable
During AR submit time the Sun Grid Engine queuing system selects the
best suited queues for the AR request and then reserves the desired
amount of resources. For a reservation, all queues that are not in
orphaned state are considered as suited. Only if the AR request can be
fulfilled, the AR will be granted.
ARs will be deleted either automatically when the end time is reached,
or manually using qrdel . In both cases, first all jobs requesting the
AR will be removed and then AR itself. Already granted ARs can be shown
Note: To make AR behavior predictable, it is necessary to have reserved
resources available at the time of AR start. This is done by keeping
jobs with a unlimited runtime limit separated from ARs, and not
considering resources used by such jobs for reservation.
Note: Resource Quotas are not considered for AR queue selection and nor
for jobs requesting a AR.
When an AR was successfully added to the Sun Grid Engine queuing system
qrsub returns a unique integer ID referring the the newly created AR.
The highest AR ID is 9999999. If the highest ID is reached, a
wraparound happens and the next unused ID, starting with 1, will be
For qrsub, the administrator and the user may define default request
files (analogous to Sun Grid Engine_request for qsub), which can
contain any of the possible command line options.
A cluster wide default request file is optional. If such a default
request file is used, it must be placed under
$SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common/sge_ar_request (global defaults file).
A user private default request file is optional. If it is used, it must
be placed under
$HOME/.sge_ar_request (user private defaults file).
Defines the activation (start) date and time of an AR. The
option is not mandatory. If omitted, the current date_time is
assumed. Either a duration or end date_time must also be
specified. For details about date_time please see sge_types(1)
Identifies the account to which the resource reservation of the
AR should be charged. For "account_string" value details please
see the "name" definition in sge_types(1). In the absence of
this parameter Sun Grid Engine will place the default account
string "sge" in the accounting record of the AR.
Selects the checkpointing environment (see checkpoint(5)) the AR
jobs may request. Using this option guarantees queues that only
providing this checkpoint environment will be reserved.
Defines the duration of the AR. The use of "-d time" is optional
if "-e date_time" is requested. For details about "time"
definition please see sge_types(1).
Defines the end date and time of an AR. The use of "-e
date_time" is optional if "-d time" is requested. For details
about "date_time" definition please see sge_types(1).
Specifies the behavior when the AR goes into an error state. The
AR goes into error state when a reserved host goes into unknown
state, a queue error happens, or when a queue is disabled or
A hard error, "-he yes", means as long as the AR is in error
state no jobs using the AR will be scheduled. If soft error,
"-he no", is specified the AR stays usable with the remaining
By default soft error handling is used.
-help Prints a list of all options.
Creates an AR in a Sun Grid Engine queue, providing the given
resource request list. complex(5) describes how a list of
available resources and their associated valid value specifiers
can be obtained.
There may be multiple -l switches in a single command.
Defines or redefines under which circumstances mail is to be
sent to the AR owner or to the users defined with the -M option
described below. The option arguments have the following
`b' Mail is sent at the beginning of the AR
`e' Mail is sent at the end of the AR
`a' Mail is sent when the AR goes into error state
`n' No mail is sent, default for qrsub
Defines or redefines the list of users to which the qmaster
Only meaningful for a parallel AR request together with the -pe
This option is used to reserve the proper queues to match this
request if it would be requested by a qsub. A more detailed
description of wc_queue_list can be found in sge_types(1).
This options impacts the queues selection for reservation.
With the "-now y" option, only queues with the qtype
"INTERACTIVE" assigned will be considered for reservation.
"-now n" is the default for qrsub.
The name of the AR. The name, if requested, must conform to
"name" as defined in sge_types(1). Invalid names will be denied
at submit time.
-w e|v Specifies the validation level applied to the AR request.
The specifiers e and v define the following validation modes:
`v' verify - does not submit the AR but prints
an extensive validation report
`e' error - rejects request if requirements cannot
be fulfilled, default for qrsub
-pe parallel_env n[-[m]]|[-]m,...
Parallel programming environment (PE) to select for the AR queue
reservation. Please see the details of a PE in sge_pe(5).
Defines or redefines a list of cluster queues, queue domains or
queue instances, that may be reserved by the AR. Please find a
description of wc_queue_list in sge_types(1). This parameter
has all the properties of a resource request and will be merged
with requirements derived from the -l option described above.
Defines the users allowed to submit jobs requesting the AR. The
access is specified by a comma separated list containing UNIX
users or ACLs (see access_list(5)). prefixing the ACL name with
an '@' sign.
By default only the AR owner is allowed to submit jobs
requesting the AR.
Note: Only queues, where all users specified in the list have
access, are considered for reservation (see queue_conf(5)).
SGE_ROOT Specifies the location of the Sun Grid Engine standard
SGE_CELL If set, specifies the default Sun Grid Engine cell. To
address a Sun Grid Engine cell, qsub, qsh, qlogin or
qalter use (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.
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.
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 for the
service "sge_qmaster" instead of defining the port.
