make frontend as sge_execd host
By hstsao on May 25, 2006
There is request from ROCKS user to make frontend as sge execd host Even through this is not the best practice, but I understand the desire from user that want to use all CPU for sge jobs. This note describe one possible way
- in frontend, login as root
- cd /opt/gridengine ./install_execd accept most default by hit return, except answer y to create local spool and supply /opt/gridengine/default/spool >
By default sge will use all CPU for running jobs, for frontend one should reserve at least one CPU for the frontend's other functions and only use slots-1 for sge.
If you have two cpu for frontend then one should change the slots for sge from 2 to 1.
qconf -mattr queue slots 1 all.q@
