Cluster Resources, in collaboration with the TORQUE* user community, recently released version 1.2.0p6 of TORQUE Resource Manager, a resource manager built on the original OpenPBS, which includes over 1,200 patches to make it more scalable and stable. The newest TORQUE version enables expanded configuration and management.
TORQUE 1.2.0p6 enables MOM configuration with features contributed by USC and OSC. New features include:
* Improved rapid start-up
* Direct support for external scheduler extensions
* New 'shell-us-arg' patch (OSC)
* File recovery failure messages (USC)
TORQUE 1.2.0p6 also includes a reworked MOM-server state management system. The improved management system lets TORQUE perform tasks such as:
* Consolidate node state changes
* Force a health check script when an update state is forced
* Improve pbsnodes 'offline' management
