torque_submit_workers - submit work_queue_worker to a Torque cluster.
torque_submit_workers [options] <servername> <port> <num-workers>
torque_submit_workers schedules the execution of work_queue_worker(1) on the Torque batch system through its job submission interface, qsub. The number of work_queue_worker scheduled and run is given by the num-workers argument. The servername and port arguments specify the hostname and port number of the manager for the work_queue_worker to connect. These two arguments become optional when the auto mode option is specified for work_queue_worker.
-M Name of the preferred manager for worker. -N <name> Preferred project name for work_queue_worker to connect. -c <cores> Set the number of cores each worker should use (0=auto). (default=1) -C <catalog> Set catalog server for work_queue_worker to <catalog>. <catalog> format: HOSTNAME:PORT. -t <seconds> Abort work_queue_worker after this amount of idle time (default=900s). -d <subsystem> Enable debugging on worker for this subsystem (try -d all to start). -w <size> Set TCP window size -i <time> Set initial value for backoff interval when worker fails to connect to a manager. (default=1s) -b <time> Set maxmimum value for backoff interval when worker fails to connect to a manager. (default=60s) -z <size> Set available disk space threshold (in MB). When exceeded worker will clean up and reconnect. (default=100MB) -A <arch> Set architecture string for the worker to report to manager instead of the value in uname. -O <os> Set operating system string for the worker to report to manager instead of the value in uname. -s <path> Set the location for creating the working directory of the worker. -j <> Use job array to submit workers. -p <parameters> Torque qsub parameters. -h Show help message.
On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.
Submit 10 worker instances to run on Torque and connect to a specific manager: torque_submit_workers manager.somewhere.edu 9123 10 Submit 10 work_queue_worker instances to run on Torque in auto mode with their preferred project name set to Project_A and abort timeout set to 3600 seconds: torque_submit_workers -a -t 3600 -M Project_A 10
