Job Validation

Forced validation at job submission time can be a valuable procedure to prevent nondispatchable jobs from forever remaining in a pending state. However, job validation can also be a time-consuming task. Job validation can be especially time-consuming in heterogeneous environments with different execution nodes and consumable resources, and in which all users have their own job profiles. In homogeneous environments with only a few different jobs, a general job validation usually can be omitted.

To disable job verification, add the qsub option –w n in the cluster-wide default requests. See Submitting Advanced Jobs With QMON in Sun N1 Grid Engine 6.1 User’s Guide, and the sge_request(5) man page.
