Improving Your Proficiency with PBS Professional
PBS Professional is a workload management system that provides a unified batch queuing and job management interface to a set of computing resources. PBS Professional is an ideal solution for customers who need consistent job submission and monitoring, want automated staging of input and return of output files, and more importantly seek security and reliability for their workload. We will discuss in depth various PBS scheduling policies, and observe how they work using the lab exercises provided. Students will complete the class with a better understanding of how PBS Professional works and how to optimize their HPC complex.
We will start with the basics of workload management and an overview of PBS Professional. Students will have the opportunity to install PBS, query Altair licenses, and go over the PBS directory structure. The second half of the day, we will explore different methods for submitting PBS jobs, and query jobs using basic and advanced techniques.
Day two will start with configuring each of the PBS components. Students will learn PBS features and details of scheduling policies. Students will have the opportunity to work through lab exercises to better understand how PBS features work.
For day three, we will focus on techniques for site-specific customization, such as writing hooks, configuring failover, using custom resources, and limiting resource usage.
