Gridengine

This repository contains a fork of the Son of Grid Engine project in conjunction with some documentation and fixes to get the gridengine working on more recent Linux systems.

Building

Before building make sure you are relaxed and your cup of coffee (or filling of your choice) is full and well temperated.

Then take a deep breath and be prepared for turbulence.

In general the build process consists of the following steps

  • Build the dependency tool and create dependencies with aimk
  • Compile with aimk

The suggested (working) build options are: aimk -no-herd -no-java

OpenSUSE 15.0 LEAP

Instructions updated on 10.01.2019

Install Requirements with

zypper install java-1_8_0-openjdk java-1_8_0-openjdk-devel gcc ant automake hwloc-devel libopenssl-1_0_0-devel libdb-4_8-devel pam-devel libXt-devel motif-devel xorg-x11-devel
# Notes: * for the openjdk you can also use a more recent version
         * The version libopenssl-1_0_0-devel is required and needs to uninstall the (by default) installed version 1.1

Prepare the environment by executing the bootstrap.sh script

cd sge-8.1.9/source
./scripts/bootstrap.sh

Then build the SGE using

./aimk -no-herd -no-java
# No HADOOP support and no Java support
# Note Java is not needed for qmon!

The build process takes some time. The generated binaries are (in my case) in the LINUXAMD64 folder in sources

Now install the binaries to SGE_ROOT:

export SGE_ROOT="/opt/sge/"   # Or whereever you want to install the grid engine to
scripts/distinst -local -allall -noexit # asks for confirmation
cd $SGE_ROOT
./inst_sge -m -x -csp  # or run ./start_gui_installer

Done

CentOS 7 (1810)

Instructions updated on 18.01.2019

IMPORTANT: Please build the SGE not under root! I encountered some cryptic linker errors as root, that disappeared when building as unprivileged user. Also ... (shame on me!) you should never build as root anyways ...

Install Requirements with

yum install csh java-1.8.0-openjdk java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel gcc ant automake hwloc-devel openssl-devel libdb-devel pam-devel libXt-devel motif-devel ncurses-libs ncurses-devel

Then, as unprivileged user, go into a tmux or screen session and start the building process with

cd sge-8.1.9/source
./scripts/bootstrap.sh

./aimk -no-herd -no-java
# No HADOOP support and no Java support
# Note Java is not needed for qmon!

If you encounter some cryptic linker errors (undefined reference to tputs, tgoto, ecc.) make sure you build as unprivileged user!

The build process takes some time. The generated binaries are (in my case) in the LINUXAMD64 folder in sources

Now install the binaries to SGE_ROOT:

export SGE_ROOT="/opt/sge/"   # Or whereever you want to install the grid engine to
scripts/distinst -local -allall -noexit # asks for confirmation
cd $SGE_ROOT
./inst_sge -m -x -csp  # or run ./start_gui_installer

Done.

Build with Java

For the graphical installer, you need to run aimk with java support. For that you will need the following additional dependencies

yum install ant-junit junit javacc

Then building should work with

./scripts/bootstrap.sh
./aimk -no-herd

If you get Java version errors, please adjust build.properties for your needs.

Firewall

In order to make SGE run, you will need to open the following ports

firewall-cmd --add-port=992/udp --permanent
firewall-cmd --add-port=6444/tcp --permanent
firewall-cmd --add-port=6445/tcp --permanent
firewall-cmd --reload

Known issues

storage size of ‘w’ isn’t known

../sh.proc.c:153:16: error: storage size of ‘w’ isn’t known
     union wait w;

This error was the whole reason for forking the repository. Comment out line 51 in ``sge-8.1.9/source/3rdparty/qtcsh/sh.proc.c` as follows:

50: #if defined(_BSD) || (defined(IRIS4D) && __STDC__) || defined(__lucid) || defined(linux) || defined(__GNU__) || defined(__GLIBC__)
51: //# define BSDWAIT
52: #endif /* _BSD || (IRIS4D && __STDC__) || __lucid || glibc */

Linker errors: undefined reference to tputs, tgoto, ecc.

I encountered this error when building as root. Try building as unprivileged user (which you should do anyways!)

Java version errors

Some weird java version not supported errors occurred to me, when building on OpenSuSE 15 LEAP. Edit the file build.properties and put there a more recent Java version like

# sge-8.1.9/source/build.properties
javac.debug=true
javac.deprecated=true
default.sge.javac.source=1.6
default.sge.javac.target=1.6
jgdi.javac.source=1.6
jgdi.javac.target=1.6
jjsv.javac.source=1.6
jjsv.javac.target=1.6
hadoop.javac.source=1.6
hadoop.javac.target=1.6

That should fix the issue.
