       qrsub.1 - Submit an Advance Reservation (AR) to Sun Grid Engine.

       qrsub   - Submit an Advance Reservation (AR) to Sun Grid Engine.


       qrsub  [-a  date_time] [-A account_string] [-ckpt ckpt_name] [-d time] [-e date_time] [-he
       yes|no] [-help] [-l resource_list] [-now] [-M user[@host],...]  [-N ar_name] [-w e|v] [-pe
       pe_name slot_range] [-q wc_queue_list] [-u wc_user_list]


       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 resources.

       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 with qrstat(.)

       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 used.

       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
       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).


       -a date_time
              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

       -A account_string
              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.

       -ckpt ckpt_name
              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.

       -d time
              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).

       -e date_time
              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

       -he y[es]|n[o]
              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 suspended.

              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 resources.
              By default soft error handling is used.

       -help  Prints a list of all options.

       -l resource=value,...
              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.

       -m b|e|a|n
              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 meaning:

              `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

       -M user[@host],...
              Defines or redefines the list of users to which the qmaster sends mail.

       -masterq wc_queue_list
              Only meaningful for a parallel AR request together with the -pe option.

              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).

       -now y[es]|n[o]
              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.

       -N name
              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).

       -q wc_queue_list
              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.

       -u [username|@access_list],...
              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 configuration files.

       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

                      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.


                      global defaults file
