Tuning Scheduling Run Time

Pending jobs are sorted according to the number of tickets that each job has, as described in Job Sorting. The scheduler reports the number of tickets each pending job has to the master daemon sge_qmaster. However, on systems with very large numbers of jobs, you might want to turn off ticket reporting. When you turn off ticket reporting, you disable ticket-based job priority. The sort order of jobs is based only on the time each job is submitted.

To turn off the reporting of pending job tickets to sge_qmaster, clear the Report Pending Job Tickets check box on the Policy Configuration dialog box. Doing so sets the report_pjob_tickets parameter of sched_conf(5) to false.
