sge_execd controls the Sun Grid Engine queues local to the machine on which sge_execd is running and executes/controls the jobs sent from sge_qmaster(8) to be run on these queues.
The scheduler can keep track why jobs could not be scheduled during the last scheduler run. This parameter enables or disables the observation. The value true enables the monitoring false turns it off.
If schedd_job_info=true, the user can obtain the collected information with the command
qstat -j job number
The parameter schedd_job_info is one of the most important parameters that initially set wrong in the default configuration that comes with Grid Engine (Chris Dagdigian)
In this case the change is that with 6.2 the parameter "schedd_job_info" now defaults to FALSE where in the past it was TRUE.
I *completely* understand why the change happened since the 6.2 design goal was for massive scalability and schedd_job_info can put a massive load on the SGE system particularly in massive clusters like Ranger where 6.2 was tested out.
But ... are most 6.2 deployments going on to systems where the exechost count or job throughput rates means that setting schedd_job_info=FALSE has a measurable performance gain, significant enough to offset the massive loss of end-user-accessible troubleshooting information? I suspect ... not.
The schedd_job_info output appended in the output of "qstat -j" is the single most effective troubleshooting and "why does my job not get dispatched" resource that is available to non SGE administrators. Taking this tool away from users (in my opinion) has a bigger negative impact than any performance gains realized (at least for the types of systems I work on most often).
So -- just like I recommend and tell people to use classic spooling on smaller systems I also plan on telling people to re-enable schedd_job_info feature on their 6.2 systems (if their system and workflow allows).
I'm bringing this up on the list for two reasons:
- Just to see what others think
Change setting of sched_conf from false to true. This setting defines the configuration file format for Grid Engineís scheduler. In order to modify the configuration, use the graphical userís interface qmon(1) or the -msconf option of the qconf command.
|A default configuration is provided with the Grid Engine distribution package, but it usually has the setting schedd_job_info=false which should be changed to schedd_job_info=true|

Scheduler monitoring can be helpful to find out the reason why certain jobs are not dispatched (displayed via qstat). However, providing this information for all jobs at any time can be resource consuming (memory and cpu time) and is usually not needed. To disable scheduler monitoring set schedd_job_info to false in scheduler configuration sched_conf(5).
