The Bright Cluster Manager CMGUI makes tasks intuitively easy. This article shows how you can view and control workload manager jobs using the Bright CMGUI. I am using an OGS (SGE) job to provide examples, but Bright works the same way with all Bright's supported workload managers: PBS Professional, Slurm, Univa Grid Engine, LSF, openlava, TORQUE/Moab, TORQUE/Maui.
Let's get started.
First, with Bright's CMGUI, you can easily view the list of running and pending jobs.
And then you can easily drill down. To get detailed information for a specific job, select it then press the "Show" button.
It only takes a second to suspend the selected job: press the "Suspend" button.
And you can resume it by pressing the "Resume" button.
You can kill the selected job by pressing the "Remove" button.
You can hold a pending job by pressing the "Hold" button.
Finally, you can release a held job by pressing the "Release" button. Note that the job doesn't have to have been held through Bright to be released.
Now, how easy was that?
