The Urgency Policy defines an urgency value for each job. This urgency value is determined by the sum of the following three contributing elements:
Resource requirement. Each resource attribute defined in the complex can have an urgency value. For information about the setting urgency values for resource attributes, see Configuring Complex Resource Attributes With QMON. Each job request for a resource attribute adds the attribute's urgency value to the total.
Deadline. The urgency value for deadline jobs is determined by dividing the Weight Deadline specified in the Policy Configuration dialog box by the free time, in seconds, until the job's deadline initiation time specified by the qsub –dl command.
Waiting time. The urgency value for a job's waiting time is determined by multiplying the job's waiting time by the Weight Waiting Time specified in the Policy Configuration dialog box. The job's waiting time is measured in seconds.
For details about how the grid engine system arrives at the urgency value total, see About the Urgency Policy.
