To configure general parameters, click the General Configuration tab. The General Configuration tab is shown in Figure 2–1.
You can specify the following parameters:
Sequence Nr. The sequence number of the queue.
Processors. A specifier for the processor set to be used by the jobs running in that queue. For some operating system architectures, this specifier can be a range, such as 1-4,8,10, or just an integer identifier of the processor set. See the arc_depend_*.asc files in the doc directory of your N1 Grid Engine 6.1 software distribution for more information.
Do not change this value unless you are certain that you need to change it.
tmp Directory. Temporary directory path.
Shell. Default command interpreter to use for running the job scripts.
Shell Start Mode. The mode in which to start the job script.
Initial State. The state in which a newly added queue comes up. Also, the state in which a queue instance is restored if the sge_execd running on the queue instance host gets restarted.
Rerun Jobs. The queue's default rerun policy to be enforced on jobs that were aborted, for example, due to system crashes. The user can override this policy using the qsub -r command or the Submit Job dialog box. See Extended Job Example in Sun N1 Grid Engine 6.1 User’s Guide.
Calendar. A calendar attached to the queue. This calendar defines on-duty and off-duty times for the queue.
Notify Time. The time to wait between delivery of SIGUSR1/SIGUSR2 notification signals and suspend or kill signals.
Job's Nice. The nice value with which to start the jobs in this queue. 0 means use the system default.
Slots. The number of jobs that are allowed to run concurrently in the queue. Slots are also referred to as job slots.
Type. The type of the queue and of the jobs that are allowed to run in this queue. Type can be Batch, Interactive, or both.
See the queue_conf(5) man page for detailed information about these parameters.
