       pbsnodes - pbs node manipulation


       pbsnodes [-{a|x}] [-q] [-s server] [node|:property]
       pbsnodes -l [-q] [-s server] [state] [nodename|:property ...]
       pbsnodes [-{c|d|o|r}] [-q] [-s server] [-n] [-N "note"] [node|:property]


       The  pbsnodes command is used to mark nodes down, free or offline.  It can also be used to
       list nodes and their state.  Node information is obtained by sending a request to the  PBS
       job  server.   Sets  of  nodes  can  be  operated on at once by specifying a node property
       prefixed by a colon.
       Nodes do not exist in a single state, but actually have a set of states.  For  example,  a
       node  can  be simultaneously "busy" and "offline".  The "free" state is the absence of all
       other states and so is never combined with other states.

       In order to execute pbsnodes with other than the -a or -l options, the user must have  PBS
       Manager or Operator privilege.


       -a             All  attributes  of a node or all nodes are listed.  This is the default if
                      no flag is given.

       -x             Same as -a, but the output has an XML-like format.

       -c             Clear OFFLINE from listed nodes.

       -d             Print MOM diagnosis on the listed nodes.  Not yet implemented.  Use  momctl

       -o             Add  the OFFLINE state.  This is different from being marked DOWN.  OFFLINE
                      prevents new jobs from running on the  specified  nodes.   This  gives  the
                      administrator  a  tool  to  hold  a  node  out  of service without changing
                      anything  else.   The  OFFLINE  state  will  never  be   set   or   cleared
                      automatically by pbs_server; it is purely for the manager or operator.

       -p             Purge the node record from pbs_server.  Not yet implemented.

       -r             Reset  the  listed  nodes  by  clearing  OFFLINE  and  adding  DOWN  state.
                      pbs_server will ping the node and, if they communicate correctly, free  the

       -l             List  node  names and their state.  If no state is specified, only nodes in
                      the DOWN, OFFLINE, or UNKNOWN states are listed.  Specifying a state string
                      acts  as  an  output  filter.   Valid  state strings are "free", "offline",
                      "down", "reserve", "job-exclusive", "job-sharing",  "busy",  "time-shared",
                      or "state-unknown".

       -N             Specify  a  "note"  attribute.   This  allows  an  administrator  to add an
                      arbitrary annotation to the listed nodes.  To clear a note, use -N "" or -N

       -n             Show  the  "note"  attribute  for nodes that are DOWN, OFFLINE, or UNKNOWN.
                      This option requires -l.

       -q             Supress all error messages.

       -s             Specify the PBS server's hostname or IP address.
