the latest stable pbs_python interface is available from: ftp://ftp.surfsara.nl/pub/outgoing/pbs_python.tar.gz
Information, documentation and reporting bugs for the package: https://oss.trac.surfsara.nl/oss/pbs_python
bug resport: firstname.lastname@example.org
=============== Brief description ============================= Pbs_python interface is a wrapper class for the OPENPBS/TORQUE C LIB API. Now you can write utilities/extensions in Python instead of C.
The Python wrapper class is tested on:
Intel cluster debian GNU/LINUX woody/sarge OPENPBS 2.3.16, TORQUE 1.0.1p4, 1.1.0p4 and up
For X86_64 systems you have to compile torque/openpbs with the -fPIC option. Else you can not build the python module
TRU64 system, NOTE: must rename libnet.a to libpbs_net.a and edit setup.py to reflect the change. There is also a system wide libnet.so.
It should run on different OSes.
In the past our Alpha cluster was redhat (6.2) and we had to add '-lots' to the LIBS line
-- Compile and install the package: (Require python 2.1 and higher)
As for python version 1.6 and higher the procedure is: ./configure make make install
Debian package: debian/rules binary
--- Testing the package:
The test programs are include as a reference how to use the pbs python module. You have to edit some test programs to reflect your PBS/Torque installation.
pbsmon.py - ascii xpbsmon rack_pbsmon.py - ascii xpbsmon by rack layout pbsnodes-a.py - pbsnodes -a pbs_version.py - print server version set_property.py - set some node properties resmom_info.py - queries the pbs_mom daemon on the nodes logpbs.py - Shows the usage of the PBS logging routines new_interface.py - Example how to use PBSQuery module PBSQuery.py - python <install_path>/PBSQuery.py (has builtin demo)
sara_nodes.py - We use this program to set the nodes offline/online. when there are no command line arguments. It will list the nodes that are down/oflline. For more info see: - https://subtrac.sara.nl/oss/pbs_python/wiki/TorqueExamples
pbs_jobmonitor - Shows the output of top -u user on the node: * one cycle of top * user: the user the job belongs to
pbs_joblogin - logs in to the node as the user who invokes this script (os.getenv('USER'))
