Does anyone have any experience with virtual queue configuration at
their site? I am trying to create a new (externally visible) queue which
ultimately maps to the same queue as all other jobs sent to our local
batch system. The motivation here is to apply different SGE directives
depending on the queue requested, and I am not in a position to add a
new real queue to our central batch system.
I have found a way of hacking the SGE submit scripts to get this done
but I would like to make any modifications by the book if possible.
I thought /etc/sge-jobmanager/vqueues.conf might be the way forward but
the docs in /opt/glite/share/doc/glite-info-dynamic-sge/README seem to
suggest that the use of this file is restricted to only specific SGE
setups. Does anyone use this in practice?
Thanks for your help,
