NAME

       globus-scheduler-event-generator - Process job state change events

SYNOPSIS

       globus-scheduler-event-generator -h

       globus-scheduler-event-generator -s LRM_NAME [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       The globus-scheduler-event-generator (SEG) is a program which uses
       local resource manager-specific monitoring modules to generate job
       state change events. At the SEG level, the state change events
       correspond to changes in any jobs which are managed by the scheduler,
       even if they do not correspond to jobs initiated by the GRAM5 Service.
       These state change events are propagated to the Job State Monitor.

       Depending on scheduler-specific requirements, the SEG may need to run
       with privileges to enable it to obtain scheduler event notifications.
       As such, one SEG runs per scheduler resource. For example, on a host
       which provides access to both PBS and fork jobs, two SEGs, running at
       (potentially) different privilege levels will be running.

       When executed, the SEG is able to start issuing events from some time
       in the past. The SEG will, in general, not require any persistent state
       between invocations. One SEG instance exists for any particular
       scheduled resource instance (one for all homogeneous PBS queues, one
       for all fork jobs, etc).

       The SEG is implemented in an executable called the
       globus-scheduler-event-generator, located in the Globus Toolkit’s sbin
       directory.

       When begun, it loads the LRM-specific module based on the LRM_NAME
       parameter, and then defers to it for most functionality. When it
       detects an error writing to stdout or reading stdin, it terminates. The
       LRM-specific code uses the SEG API to emit events to the GRAM5 service.

OPTIONS

       -h
           Display a help message and exit.

       -s LRM_NAME
           Load the LRM-specific module for LRM_NAME. This is translated to
           loading the dynamic library libglobus_seg_’LRM_NAME'.

       -t TIMESTAMP
           Process events starting at TIMESTAMP. This is the only way to get
           the globus-scheduler-event-generator to process events that occur
           before the process begins. If not specified, it will generate
           events from the current timestamp only.

       -d DIRECTORY
           Write job state change events to files in DIRECTORY, named by the
           day that the event occurred (DIRECTORY/YYYYMMDD); if not specified,
           the events will be written to standard output.

       -b
           Run in the background. This only works if the -d option above is
           used.

       -p PIDFILE
           Write the process id of the globus-scheduler-event-generator to
           PIDFILE.
