NAME

       qmon - X-Windows OSF/Motif graphical user's interface for Sun Grid Engine

SYNTAX

       qmon [options]

DESCRIPTION

       Qmon  allows  administrators and users to manipulate the Sun Grid Engine system from an X-
       Window environment.  Qmon provides various dialogues linked  together  in  multiple  ways.
       For each task the user wishes to accomplish via qmon a corresponding dialogue is provided.
       There are multiple ways to address the proper dialogue for a certain task:

       ·  The qmon main window that comes up first on start-up  contains  icon  buttons  for  all
          major administrative and user tasks. A functionality tooltip is displayed when pointing
          at the different icons.

       ·  A Task pulldown menu button appears in the qmon main window menu bar.  Clicking  on  it
          opens  a  list  of  available  tasks.  Selecting  one  of  them opens the corresponding
          dialogue.

       ·  The Task pulldown menu also contains the key accelerators which can be used  to  invoke
          the  task dialogues directly from the main window by pressing a certain button sequence
          on the keyboard.

       ·  While navigating through a certain dialogue and its  dialogue  subhierarchy,  links  to
          other  dialogues occur whenever a connection between both dialogues is obvious. Pushing
          the buttons that identify the links opens up the other dialogues.

OPTIONS

       The supported options are the standard X Toolkit options  as  described  in  X(1)  section
       Options. Furthermore, qmon supports:

       -cmap  Installs  a  private  color  map  for  qmon.   This  is  sometimes  useful if other
              applications have already allocated lots of colors and if qmon,  therefore,  prints
              corresponding  error  messages.  Note, however, that using a private color map will
              result in color map switches whenever you enter or leave qmon windows.

       -fontFamily {big|medium|small}
              Notifies qmon to use different sized font families for different resolution sizes.

       -help  Displays usage information.

       -nologo
              Startup without logo.

DIALOGUES

   Job Control
       The Job Control dialogue provides a folder of tabulated lists of the still  pending  jobs,
       already  running  jobs  and  recently  finished  jobs.   The  dialogue allows for detailed
       information on the jobs as well as for the deletion and suspension of jobs being selected.
       In  addition  the  job  control  dialogue  offers links to the Submit dialogue in order to
       submit new jobs or to change  attributes  of  pending  jobs  (Qalter  button).  The  shown
       displayed  fields  in  the  tabular  display  and  the jobs displayed can be customized by
       pressing the Customize button. This customization can be saved to the  ~/.qmon_preferences
       file  and  is  used on following startups for the initial configuration of the Job Control
       dialogue.

   Queue Control
       The Queue Control dialogue with its sub-dialogue hierarchy enables the user to control the
       status  of  the  Sun Grid Engine queues being actually configured in the system and allows
       the administrator to add new queues or to modify or  delete  already  existing  ones.  The
       Queue  Control dialogue shows a tabbed view of Cluster Queues or their corresponding Queue
       Instances in a tabular way.

       By pushing the Add, Clone or Modify button, a sub-dialogue for configuring Sun Grid Engine
       queues is opened.  A queue needs to be selected to use the clone and modify operation. The
       configuration sub-dialogue allows for definition of the queue  and  its  attributes.   The
       configuration  sub-dialogue  contains  in  the  upper section the queue name and a list of
       hosts or hostgroups for which this queue contains the configuration.   The  lower  section
       contains a list of hosts or hostgroups at the left, where the default attributes are shown
       when the "@/" entry is highlighted.  These  default  attributes  can  be  overruled  on  a
       hostgroup  or  host  basis  by  enabling  attributes  and changing their values after this
       hostgroup or host entry has been added in the  "Attributes  for  Host/Hostgroup"  listbox.
       The  queue  configuration  parameters  (see  queue_conf(5))  are  subdivided  in different
       categories  (General  Configuration,  Execution   Methods,   Checkpointing,   Load/Suspend
       Thresholds,  Limits,  Complexes,  User Access, Project Access, Subordinate Queues, Owners)
       which are selectable by the tab widget area presented in the lower  region  of  the  queue
       configuration  sub-dialogue.   The administrator may select previously configured settings
       from already existing queues (Clone button). By pushing the Ok button, the definitions are
       registered with sge_qmaster(8).  The Queue Control dialogue can be customized in a similar
       way  as  the  Job  Control  dialogue.  The  settings  applied  here  are  also  saved   in
       ~/.qmon_preferences.

   Submit
       The  Job  Submission dialogue serves for submitting batch and interactive jobs and is also
       invoked when changing attributes of pending jobs from the Job Control  dialogue  explained
       above  (Qalter  button).  To  toggle  between  batch  and  interactive jobs please use the
       Batch/Interactive button at the top of the button column on the  right  side  of  the  Job
       Submission screen.

       The  dialogue consists of a folder containing two job preparation dialogue pages. The most
       frequently used parameters in the course of a job submission are offered  on  the  General
       page.  A  job  script has to be defined, all other fields are optional. If the job demands
       for specification of advanced requirements, the Advanced tab can be used to switch  to  an
       enhanced parameter display.

       If  resource requirements are mandatory for the job, the Request Resources icon button has
       to be used to pop up the Requested Resources sub-dialogue.  This sub-dialogue  allows  for
       selection  of  the  required  resources of the job and for definition of the quantities in
       which this resources are to be provided. The Available Resources are constituted by  those
       complex  attributes  being  declared  requestable  (see  complex(5) for details). Resource
       requirements can be made Hard, i.e. they must be met before a job  can  be  started  in  a
       queue, or Soft, i.e. they are granted on an as available basis.

       Closing  the  Requested  Resources  sub-dialogue  with the done button books the specified
       requirement for the job. Pushing the Submit  button  on  the  top  level  Submit  dialogue
       submits the job.

   Complex Config
       The  Complex Config allows the administrator to add new complex attributes or to modify or
       delete existing ones (see complex(5)).  The  complex  configuration  dialogue  provides  a
       tabulated list of the complex attribute entries and an input region for the declaration of
       new or modified entries. The Add button updates the tabulated list with a  new  attribute.
       The  Modify  button  changes  a highlighted existing entry.  The Delete button removes the
       highlighted attributes.  The Load and Save buttons allow saving  or  reloading  the  whole
       attribute  list  to  or  from  file.   The  Ok button registers the additional or modified
       complex attributes with sge_qmaster(8).

   Host Config
       Four types of host related lists can be maintained via the Host Config dialogue:

              Administration Hosts
              Submit Hosts
              Host Groups
              Execution Hosts

       The host list to be manipulated is  selected  via  clicking  at  one  of  the  tabs  named
       correspondingly.  The  first  two  host lists only provide for adding or deleting entries,
       thereby allowing administrative or submit permission  for  the  hosts  on  the  lists,  or
       denying  it  otherwise  respectively.  The host group list allows the manipulation of host
       groups. Host groups can reference either other host groups or hosts.  The  execution  host
       list  entries  in  addition  provide  the  ability  to define scaling factors for the load
       sensors,  consumable  complex  attributes  and  access  attributes  (access,  xaccess  and
       projects,  xprojects)  as described in complex(5).  CPU, memory and I/O usage reported for
       running jobs can be scaled in addition and the relative  performance  of  a  host  can  be
       define with the Resource Capability Factor (see host_conf(5)).

   Cluster Config
       This  dialogue  maintains  the  cluster  global  configuration  as  well  as host specific
       derivatives (see sge_conf(5)).  When opened, the dialogue displays a  selection  list  for
       all  hosts  which  have  a configuration assigned. The special name "global" refers to the
       cluster global configuration. By pushing the Add/Modify button a sub-dialogue  is  opened,
       which   allows   for   modification  of  the  cluster  configuration.  For  host  specific
       configurations the 'global' host specific configuration fields  are  set  insensitive  and
       only the allowed parameters can be manipulated.

   Scheduler Config
       The  Scheduler Configuration dialogue provides the means to change the behavior of the Sun
       Grid Engine scheduler thread part of sge_qmaster(8)  process.   The  dialogue  contains  a
       representation  for  all scheduler configuration parameters as described in sched_conf(5).
       It is subdivided in the two sections General Parameters and Load Adjustments which can  be
       selected   via  the  corresponding  tabs.   The  Ok  button  registers  any  changes  with
       sge_qmaster(8).

   Calendar Config
       The Calendar Config allows the administrator to add new calendars or to modify  or  delete
       existing  ones  (see  calendar_conf(5)).   The  dialogue  offers  a selection list for the
       existing calendars and displays the configuration of the one being  selected.  By  pushing
       the  Delete  button,  the selected calendar is deleted from the configuration. Pushing the
       Add/Modify button will open a calendar configuration dialogue, which allows to create  new
       calendars or which provides the means to change the existing ones. The Ok button registers
       the additional or modified calendar with sge_qmaster(8).

   User Config
       User permissions are controlled via the User Config dialogue.  The tab widget in the  left
       section of the dialogue allows for selecting between

              Configuration of Manager accounts.
              Configuration of Operator accounts.
              Definition of Usersets.
              Definition of User accounts.

       Those user accounts added to the list of manager or operator accounts are given permission
       to act as managers or operators respectively when accessing Sun Grid  Engine  under  their
       own account.

       The  userset  lists  are  used  together  with the user_lists and xuser_lists host, queue,
       project  and  cluster  configuration  parameters  (see   queue_conf(5),   project(5)   and
       sge_conf(5)) to control access of users to hosts, queues, projects and the entire cluster.
       A userset is just a collection of user  names  and  UNIX  group  names.  Group  names  are
       identified  by  prefixing them with a "@" sign. The already defined usersets are displayed
       in a selection list. These lists can be modified and new lists can be  created  using  the
       Userset definition dialogue.

       Usersets  can  be  used  as  Access  List  and/or as Department required for the so called
       Functional Policy and Override Policy (see Ticket Config below).

       User names can be added to the system as entries to the Sun Grid Engine user database (see
       user(5)), This can be done with the User sub-dialogue.

       The  Tickets  button in the button list on the right side of the dialogue opens the Ticket
       Config dialogue (see below).

   PE Config
       Parallel environment (PE) interfaces can be configured with this dialogue.  PE  interfaces
       are necessary to describe the way how parallel programming environments like PVM (Parallel
       Virtual Machine), MPI (Message Passing Interface) or shared memory parallel systems are to
       be  instantiated  and  to  impose  access  restrictions onto the PEs. When the dialogue is
       opened a list of the already  configured  PEs  is  displayed  together  with  the  current
       configuration  (see  sge_pe(5)) of the selected PE interface.  To add new PE interfaces or
       to modify existing ones, an Add and  a  Modify  button  is  available  which  opens  a  PE
       interface  configuration  sub-dialogue.  After applying the changes and quitting this sub-
       dialogue with the OK  button,  the  new  or  modified  PE  interface  is  registered  with
       sge_qmaster(8).

   Checkpoint Config
       Checkpointing  environment interfaces can be configured with this dialogue.  Checkpointing
       environments are necessary to describe the attributes which  the  different  checkpointing
       methods  and their derivatives on various operating system platforms supported by Sun Grid
       Engine have. When the dialogue is opened a list of the  already  configured  checkpointing
       environments  is  displayed together with the current configuration (see checkpoint(5)) of
       the selected checkpointing environment. To add new checkpointing environment or to  modify
       existing  ones,  an  Add  and  a  Modify  button  is available which opens a checkpointing
       environment configuration sub-dialogue. After applying the changes and quitting this  sub-
       dialogue  with  the OK button, the new or modified checkpointing environment is registered
       with sge_qmaster(8).

   Ticket Conf
       This dialogue offers an overview and editing screen for allocating tickets to  the  share-
       based, functional and override scheduling policies.

       The  Deadline  Job  button opens the User Conf dialogue box.  Please change to the Userset
       sub-dialogue and select the userset named "deadlineusers".  Only users of this userset may
       submit deadline jobs.

       The  Share  Tree  Policy  button  opens the dialogue for creating and editing the Sun Grid
       Engine share  tree  (see  share_tree(5)  and  schedd_conf(5)  for  a  description  of  the
       configuration parameters).

       The Functional Policy button opens the dialogue for creating and editing the allocation of
       the functional shares (see sched_conf(5), access_list(5),  project(5),  queue_conf(5)  and
       user(5) for a description of the different types of functional shares and the configurable
       weighting parameters).

       The Override Policy button opens the dialogue for creating and editing the  allocation  of
       override  tickets  (see  access_list(5),  project(5),  queue_conf(5)  and  user(5)  for  a
       description of the different types of override tickets).

   Project Conf
       This button opens a dialog for creating projects.
       The dialogue  offers  a  selection  list  for  the  existing  projects  and  displays  the
       configuration  of  the  one  being  selected.  By  pushing the Delete button, the selected
       project is deleted from the configuration. Pushing  the  Add/Modify  button  will  open  a
       project  configuration dialogue, which allows to create new projects or which provides the
       means to change the existing ones.  Project  configuration  in  essence  means  giving  or
       denying access to a project for usersets (see User Conf above as well as project(5)).  The
       Ok button registers the additional or modified project with sge_qmaster(8).

   Browser
       The Object Browser dialogue's purpose is manifold: First of all, Sun Grid Engine and  qmon
       messages such as notification of error or success concerning a previously taken action can
       be displayed in the dialogue's output window.  Also the standard output and  the  standard
       error output of qmon can be diverted to the Object Browser output window.

       Additionally  the  Object  Browser can be used to display continuous information about Sun
       Grid Engine objects as the mouse pointer moves over their representation as icons or table
       entries  in  other qmon dialogues. Currently, only the display of the configuration of two
       Sun Grid Engine objects in two separate dialogues is supported:

       ·  Queue configurations are displayed as soon as the mouse pointer enters a queue icon  in
          the top level Queue Control dialogue (see above). This facility is activated by pushing
          the Queue button in the Object Browser dialogue.

       ·  Detailed job information is printed as soon as the user moves the mouse pointer over  a
          line  in  the  Job  Control dialogue (see above) being assigned to a running or pending
          job.

       ·  Additionally job scheduling information is displayed in the browser if the Why ? button
          in  the  Job  Control  dialogue is pressed. In this case the Browser dialogue is opened
          implicitly and any scheduling related information is displayed.

   Exit
       The Exit icon button is not linked with a dialogue. Its  sole  purpose  is  to  close  all
       active qmon dialogues and to exit the application.

RESOURCES

       The  available  resources,  their meaning and the syntax to be followed in order to modify
       them are described in the default qmon resource file (see the section Files below for  the
       location of the resource file).

ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES

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

       SGE_CELL       If  set,  specifies the default Sun Grid Engine cell. To address a Sun Grid
                      Engine cell qmon 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.

RESTRICTIONS

       If  the  line  to  be entered in an editing window is longer than the width of the window,
       then the text just runs off the end of the window.

FILES

       <sge_root>/qmon/Qmon           Qmon sample resources file
