Sun Grid Engine 6.2u3 Beta Program Started
By Lubomir Petrik on Apr 24, 2009
What's New in this 6.2u3 Beta Release
Sun Grid Engine Inspect - SGE Inspect, a new Monitoring and Configuration Console, allows to monitor Sun Grid Engine clusters and to monitor and configure the Service Domain Manager (SDM).
Service Domain Manager (SDM) Cloud Adapter and Initial Power Saving Support - The new SDM service adapter interface adds support to manage external virtual resources. The implementation provides an interface to manage Amazon's EC2 AMIs. Those AMIs could include SGE execution hosts which can be added to a local Sun Grid Engine cluster. The enhanced spare pool implementation can be configured to power cycle machines when being added or removed from the spare pool.
- "Exclusive Job" Scheduling Enhancement - Jobs and all parallel tasks of a job can request exclusive scheduling on a host. Jobs requiring resources only available for one job per host or jobs having access patterns to hardware resources like CPUs or memory, which make it useful to run only one job per machine can request non shared access.
Complete Microsoft Windows Vista Support - A native Windows job can now open a GUI on a Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 desktop (SGE 6.2u2 added support for those Windows operating systems).
This Beta lasts until Wednesday, 5/20/2009.
