Re: [Starcluster] Load Balancer Problems

Hey Rajat,

So I tested out the load balancer some today. We ran into 2 problems. The
first is that we submitted an array of jobs to the queue. The balancer is
treating the array as one job and not recognizing that it needs to open up
more nodes. The second problem is that the logic in closing down nodes isn't
taking into account the hour limits beyond the first 45. For example if our
instance has been up for 61 minutes we've bought the second hour
and don't want to just close that instance. I have attached the xml output.
