PBS Java API

A simple Java API for interfacing with a PBS cluster.

Examples

Given the following PBS script from the agaveapi/torque repository.

#!/bin/bash
#PBS -l walltime=00:1:00
#PBS -l nice=19
#PBS -q debug

date
hostname
sleep 5
date

qsub

You can submit to a PBS server with the following code.

    String scriptLocation = PBS001.class.getResource("/torque.submit").getFile();
    String jobId = PBS.qsub(scriptLocation);
    System.out.println(String.format("Job ID %s", jobId));

Which would be equivalent to qsub /${HOME}/workspace/project/torque.submit. The returned output is probably similar to "0.localhost", with the job id and the node name.

tracejob

Or you could query the server for information about the job.

    CommandOutput co = PBS.traceJob("0", 30);
    System.out.println(co.getOutput());

Which is similar to tracejob 0, and will probably return something similar to:

[root@localhost 5.0.0]# tracejob 0
/var/spool/torque/server_logs/20150920: No such file or directory
/var/spool/torque/mom_logs/20150920: No such file or directory
/var/spool/torque/sched_logs/20150920: No such file or directory

Job: 0.localhost

API JavaDocs

The API JavaDocs are published in the gh-pages of this GitHub repository, and are publicly available at http://biouno.org/pbs-java-api/

Testing PBS servers with Docker

You can use Docker to create a container running Linux and a Torque PBS server with the following commands.

docker run -d -h docker.example.com \
-p 10022:22 \
--privileged \
--name torque \
agaveapi/torque

Or to expose the PBS ports.

docker run -d -h docker.example.com \
-p 10022:22 \
-p 15001:15001 \
-p 15002:15002 \
-p 15003:15003 \
-p 15004:15004 \
--privileged \
--name torque \
agaveapi/torque

And later start it with docker start torque when necessary.

We are using the agaveapi/torque image.

Publishing the JavaDocs to GitHub

We use ghp-import to publish the API JavaDocs to GitHub, with the following commands:

mvn clean javadoc:javadoc && ghp-import -n -m "Publish JavaDocs to gh-pages branch" -p target/site/apidocs/

The first statement cleans the existing reports, and creates the JavaDocs reports using the Maven plug-in. The second statement calls ghp-import passing the location of the API JavaDocs, which is used as working directory to commit to gh-pages branch.
