Adding and Specifying Compute Resources at Torque

This blog entry is the follow-up of Installing Torque 2.5 on CentOS 6 with xCAT tool.

After installing of Torque on the Head Node and Compute Node, the next things to do is to configure the Torque Server. In this blog entry, I will focus on the Configuring the Compute Resources at Torque Server

 Step 1: Adding Nodes to the Torque Server
# qmgr -c "create node node01"

Step 2: Configure Auto-Detect Nodes CPU Detection. Setting auto_node_np to TRUE overwrites the value of np set in $TORQUEHOME/server_priv/nodes
# qmgr -c "set server auto_node_np = True"

Step 3: Start the pbs_mom of the compute nodes, the torque server will detect the nodes automatically
# service pbs_mom start
