NAME

       sge_execd - Sun Grid Engine job execution agent

SYNOPSIS

       sge_execd [ -help ]

DESCRIPTION

       sge_execd  controls  the Sun Grid Engine queues local to the machine on which sge_execd is
       running and executes/controls the jobs sent from sge_qmaster(8) to be run on these queues.

OPTIONS

   -help
       Prints a listing of all options.

LOAD SENSORS

       If a load sensor is configured for sge_execd via either the global host  configuration  or
       the  execution-host-specific cluster configuration (See sge_conf(5).), the executable path
       of the load sensor is invoked by sge_execd on a regular basis and delivers one or multiple
       load  figures  for  the  execution  host (e.g.  users currently logged in) or the complete
       cluster (e.g. free disk space on a network wide scratch file system). The load sensor  may
       be  a  script  or a binary executable. In either case its handling of the STDIN and STDOUT
       streams and its control flow must comply to the following rules:

       The load sensor must be written as an infinite loop waiting at a certain point  for  input
       from STDIN. If the string "quit" is read from STDIN, the load sensor should exit.  When an
       end-of-line is read from STDIN, a load data retrieval cycle should start. The load  sensor
       then performs whatever operation is necessary to compute the desired load figures.  At the
       end of the cycle the load sensor writes the result to stdout. The format is as follows:

       ·  A load value report starts with a line containing only either the word  "start" or  the
          word "begin".

       ·  Individual load values are separated by newlines.

       ·  Each load value report consists of three parts separated by colons (":") and containing
          no blanks.

       ·  The first part of a load value information is either the name of  the  host  for  which
          load is reported or the special name "global".

       ·  The second part is the symbolic name of the load value as defined in the host or global
          complex list (see complex(5) for details). If a load value is  reported  for  which  no
          entry in the host or global complex list exists, the reported load value is not used.

       ·  The third part is the measured load value.

       ·  A load value report ends with a line with only the word "end".

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 sge_execd 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 for the service "sge_qmaster" 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 for the service "sge_execd" instead to define that port.

RESTRICTIONS

       sge_execd  usually  is  started from root on each machine in the Sun Grid Engine pool.  If
       started by a normal user, a spool directory must be used to which the user has  read/write
       access.  In this case only jobs being submitted by that same user are handled correctly by
       the system.

FILES

       sgepasswd  contains  a  list   of   user   names    and    their  corresponding  encrypted
       passwords.  If  available,  the password  file  will  be   used   by  sge_execd. To change
       the contents of this file please use the sgepasswd command. It is not advised  to   change
       that file manually.
