Lack of functionalities

(work in progress))

Site Lack of functionality Explanation Destination Product Action Comments
CC-IN2P3 Distribution Rate A means to limit the number of spawned jobs user and group for a scheduler round Admin & User OGE SR closed RFE#7118362 has been raised to add this feature in future releases.
CC-IN2P3 Missing ressources GE doesn't refuse a job requesting inconsistant/incompatible queues and ressources. Job stays in queue
It is possible to use JSV but it's heavy .
Admin & User OGE SR closed RFE has been logged
CC-IN2P3 Job Efficiency No mean to measure it inside GE Admin & User OGE SR closed RFE is raised : New attribute cpurate in qstat
CC-IN2P3 Jobs limitation No means to limit jobs (Queued+run) per user or project (only global limit) Admin & User OGE SR open in progress
CC-IN2P3 qalter We cannot modify only ONE resource of a queued job: we have to specify again all resources Admin & User OGE SR open The product team may incorporate this request in future releases.
CC-IN2P3 qacct, qstat Not the same information depending on current status of job : Queued or Run vs Ended
Difficult to get a synoptic (coherent?) view
Admin & User OGE SR opened Requirement and improvement for those commands
Own requirements and improvements for those commands has been sent to support
Seems to become a RFE
CC-IN2P3 Minimum running jobs Grant a minimum amount of running jobs per user user & admin OGE
CC-IN2P3 qstat qstat error message is truncated to 128 characters user & admin OGE SR closed BUG FIXED
