This is a list of minor fixes and workarounds encountered during scale testing of program launch. Most notable is the kludge to workaround use of hostlist for lists of tasks (eventually we'll use something more apt), and a convenience option for flux wreckrun to avoid processing stdio and task exit states, but simply wait until a job reaches a given state (--wait-until=state).

The kvs_watch for lwj.state is moved before the run request event, mainly to support --wait-until but also because it was found to be confusing to have "missing" states in verbose output during large scale program launch.

grondo added some commits Aug 17, 2016

lua-hostlist: temporarily bump MAX_RANGE
Since lua-hostlist is used for tasks in some cases, temporarily
bump MAX_RANGE (max upper bound for a host range) to 1M hosts
so that errors are not reported for task counts > 16K tasks.

Eventually this hostlist use case should be replaced with
something like nodeset.
flux-wreck: add NTASKS to flux-wreck timing
Add number of tasks column to `flux wreck timing` output.
flux-wreckrun: watch lwj.state before run request
Create kvswatcher (install kvs_watch()) before issueing
request, so no states are lost when running in verbose mode. This
should not affect functionality, but is useful when debugging
flux-wreckrun and/or job launch
wreck: set nocommit flags on fatal log kzio
Add flags to fatal error log kz object such that a kvs commit
is not issued per line, on open, or on close.
wreck/lua.d: input.lua: avoid writing nil to input kz
Check for nil input data (e.g. when reading eof only) in the
iowatcher handler for stdin fd. Avoids potential runtime error
in then input.lua plugin.
bindings/lua: check for NULL kz object in kz:write()
Check for NULL kz object (though this should not happen)
in lua bindings for kz:write, before calling kz_put().
cmd/flux-wreckrun: Add -w, --wait-util=state option
Add an option to flux-wreckrun to ignore stdio and task exit
status, and instead just wait until the job hits a certain state
(starting, running, or complete), then exit with 0 status.
doc/flux-wreckrun(1): document -w, --wait-until=STATE
Document the -w, --wait-until option to flux-wreckrun.
