How to configure a TORQUE/PBS resource

In order to configure a TORQUE/PBS cluster accessed through ssh protocol, you should follow the next steps:

  1. Configure the meteo resource. If you do not have a private_key file, you can generate one by executing ?ssh-keygen. This command will generate a public key (~/.ssh/ that will be necessary later on.
    [user@mycomputer~]$ drm4g resource edit
    enable            = true
    communicator      = ssh
    username          = user
    frontend          =
    private_key       = ~/.ssh/id_rsa
    lrms              = pbs
    queue             = short
    max_jobs_running  = 2
    max_jobs_in_queue = 6
  2. List and check if resource has been created successfully :
    [user@mycomputer~]$ drm4g resource list
    RESOURCE            STATE               
    meteo               enabled
  3. Copy the public key (~/.ssh/ to authorized_keys file on the remote frond-end, and adds the private key to the agent for the ssh authorization:
    [user@mycomputer~]$ drm4g id meteo init 
    Starting ssh-agent ...
     WARNING: ssh-agent is already running
    --> Add '/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa' into ssh-agent for 168 hours
     Lifetime set to 7 days, 0:00:00
    --> Copy '/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa' to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on ''
  4. Show information about the identity:
    [user@mycomputer~]$ drm4g id meteo info
    --> Display '/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa' key
    ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQAABAQDcUYc9tDOYptqAWf7YzgN2NY9F+AtObtVvgh0PsIWZvDx1ml6j9n7zihiHFwnNIQh1q1EpIku/Jg8kyKOnbpm+2prnIhURoAWxO+rlzCF0Q4hHHW5svNNR6doCZ9mNNswi1uHaVpwhu8EKgfPyH+oNI/inSnJ/QQRHILyjUvaNbQPuXwVBpYjpvOAFOYA2VZqi+IfTq13lks7DCBfv3DK1w38aDQ9xFP/hYlQKwC/DwJo1q2CWxg5WZhgHFRG/1nyVH/nTbjOMTRZS61Gre58UUab/wSZQc6rTkrTitnCdAujIUx5eiOhM90JfDj+VUriLTnXCkwUC4+h

That's it! Now, you can summit jobs to meteo.
