Sun N1 Grid Engine 6.1 Administration Guide

Node Attributes

Under Node Attributes, the attributes of the selected node are displayed:

When a user node or a project node is removed and then added back, the user's or project's usage is retained. A node can be added back either at the same place or at a different place in the share tree. You can zero out that usage before you add the node back to the share tree. To do so, first remove the node from the users or projects configured in the grid engine system. Then add the node back to the users or projects there.

Users or projects that were not in the share tree but that ran jobs have nonzero usage when added to the share tree. To zero out usage when you add such users or projects to the tree, first remove them from the users or projects configured in the grid engine system. Then add them to the tree.

To add an interior node under the selected node, click Add Node. A blank Node Info window appears, where you can enter the node's name and number of shares. You can enter any node name or share number.

To add a leaf node under the selected node, click Add Leaf. A blank Node Info window appears, where you can enter the node's name and number of shares. The node's name must be an existing grid engine user (Configuring User Objects With QMON) or project (Defining Projects)

The following rules apply when you are adding a leaf node:

To edit the selected node, click Modify. A Node Info window appears. The window displays the mode's name and its number of shares.

To cut or copy the selected node to a buffer, click Cut or Copy. To Paste under the selected node the contents of the most recently cut or copied node, click Paste.

To delete the selected node and all its descendents, click Delete.

To clear the entire share-tree hierarchy, click Clear Usage. Clear the hierarchy when the share-based policy is aligned to a budget and needs to start from scratch at the beginning of each budget term. The Clear Usage facility also is handy when setting up or modifying test N1 Grid Engine 6.1 software environments.

QMON periodically updates the information displayed in the Share Tree Policy dialog box. Click Refresh to force the display to refresh immediately.

To save all the node changes that you make, click Apply. To close the dialog box without saving changes, click Done.

To search the share tree for a node name, click Find, and then type a search string. Node names are indicated which begin with the case sensitive search string. Click Find Next to find the next occurrence of the search string.
