Summary     : Tera-scale Open-source Resource and QUEue manager
Description :
TORQUE (Tera-scale Open-source Resource and QUEue manager) is a resource
manager providing control over batch jobs and distributed compute nodes.
TORQUE is based on OpenPBS version 2.3.12 and incorporates scalability,
fault tolerance, and feature extension patches provided by USC, NCSA, OSC,
the U.S. Dept of Energy, Sandia, PNNL, U of Buffalo, TeraGrid, and many
other leading edge HPC organizations.

This package holds just a few shared files and directories.

Update Information:

* fix to get new pagg ID and add additional CSA records when restarting from
checkpoint (backported from 2.5.2)  * added documentation for
pbs_alterjob_async(), pbs_checkpointjob(),  * pbs_fbserver(),
pbs_get_server_list() and pbs_sigjobasync( (backported from 2.5.2)  * fix for
bug 61. The fix takes care of a problem where pbs_mom under some situations will
change the mode and permissions of /dev/null.  * Backed out enhancement for
preempted jobs. This was SVN revision 3784. This patch cased qrun to hang and
not return when executing jobs.  * Commited changes that changed how preempted
jobs are killed. This change uses a SIGTERM followed by a kill_delay SIGKILL to
give preemted jobs time to checkpoint before terminating.  * Modified fix in
qmgr.c in is_attr to check for the '.'character on resource attributes such as
resources_available.nodect. The attribute is striped of the '.' and the element
and just the attribute name is used to compare for a valid attribute.  * Made a
fix to qmgr.c in is_attr. When checking node names against attribute keywords
is_attr used strncmp and limited the length of the compare to the length of the
keyword. So node names like stateless were tagged as an error. I replaced
strncmp with strcmp. This fix was added to trunk first. Version 2.5.0  *
Bugzilla bug 57. Check return value of malloc for tracejob for Linux (Chris
Samuel - Univ. of Melbourne)  * fix so "gres" config gets displayed by pbsnodes
* use QSUBHOST as the default host for output files when no host is specified.
(RT 7678)  * allow users to use cpusets and geometry requests at the same time
by specifying both at configure time.  * Bugzilla bug 55. Check return value of
malloc for pbs_mom for Linux (Chris Samuel - Univ. of Melbourne)  * added server
parameter job_force_cancel_time. When configured to Xseconds, a job that is
still there X seconds after a qdel will be purged. Useful for freeing nodes from
a job when one node goes down midjob.  * fixed gcc warnings reported by Skip
Montanaro  * added RPT_BAVAIL define that allows pbs_mom to report f_bavail
instead of f_bfree on Linux systems  * no longer consider -t and -T the same in
qsub  * make PBS_O_WORKDIR accessible in the environment for prolog scripts  *
Bugzilla 59. Applied patch to allow '=' for qdel -m. (Chris Samuel - Univ. of
Melbourne)  * properly escape characters (&"'<>) in XML output)  * ignore port
when checking host in svr_get_privilege()  * restore ability to parse -W
x=geometry:{...,...}  * from Simon Toth: If no available amount is specified for
a r and the max limit is set, the requirement should be checked against the
maximum only (for scheduler, bugzilla 23).  * check return values from fwrite in
cpuset.c to avoid warnings  * expand acl host checking to allow * in the middle
of hostnames, not just at the beginning. Also allow ranges like a[10-15] to mean
a10, a11, ..., a15.
