Re: sge submit host question

You will need to have the $SGE_ROOT dir available on your submit host.

$SGE_ROOT need not be shared, but at least the act_qmaster and a few configuration variables are

needed. You need to keep in mind that StarCluster uses the private IP & hostname, so you will need
to make sure that "act_qmaster" contains the public hostname & not the private one.

And you will need to add the host as submit host (qconf -as):

I *think* if you tar up the $SGE_ROOT dir on the master machine, untar it on your local machine, and point
the $SGE_ROOT env var to your local dir, adjust act_qmaster, and also have a local copy of qsub binary
available, then it *should* work. Try it with a 1-node test cluster (I usually use t1.micro for these types of things).

Subject: [StarCluster] sge submit host question


This is more of a best-practice question.

Let's say I am on machine A.  From it, I create a cluster.  I can then
ssh into the "master" and launch jobs.  Can this also be done from
machine A directly?  I know one can do "starcluster sshmaster -u
sgeadmin <clustername> 'some command'" but then I typically run into
environment issues.  Is there (simple) a way to make machine A an sge
submit host?
