FEDORA-EPEL-2011-2733 created by stevetraylen 9 years ago for Fedora EPEL 6

The license for torque changes from "OpenPBS" to "OpenPBS and TORQUEv1.1"

bugs (b) and enhancements (e) included in the update from 2.5.4 -> 2.5.5 include:

  • b - change so gpus get written back to nodes file
  • e - make it so that even if an array request has multiple consecutive '%' the slot limit will be set correctly
  • b - Fixed bug in job_log_open where the global variable logpath was freed instead of joblogpath.
  • b - Fixed memory leak in function procs_requested.
  • b - Validated incoming data for escape_xml to prevent a seg-fault with incoming null pointers
  • e - Added submit_host and init_work_dir as job attributes. These two values are now displayed with a qstat -f. The submit_host is the name of the host from where the job was submitted. init_work_dir is the working directory as in PBS_O_WORKDIR.
  • e - change so blcr checkpoint jobs can restart on different node. Use configure --enable-blcr to allow.
  • b - remove the use of a GNU specific function, and fix an error for solaris builds
  • b - Updated PBS_License.txt to remove the implication that the software is not freely redistributable.
  • b - remove the $PBS_GPUFILE when job is done on mom
  • b - fix a race condition when issuing a qrerun followed by a qdel that caused the job to be queued instead of deleted sometimes.
  • e - Implemented Bugzilla Bug 110. If a host in the nodes file cannot be resolved at startup the server will try once every 5 minutes until the node will resolve and it will add it to the nodes list.
  • e - Added a "create" method to pbs_server init.d script so a serverdb filecan be created if it does not exist at startup time. This is an enhancement in reference to Bugzilla bug 90.
  • e - Add code to verify the group list as well when VALIDATEGROUPS is set in torque.cfg (backported from 3.0.1)
  • b - Fix a bug where if geometry requests are enabled and cpusets are enabled, the cpuset wasn't deleted unless a geometry request was made. (backported from 3.0.1)
  • b - Fix a race condition when starting pbs_mom with the -q option. exitstatus was getting overwritten and as a result jobs would not always be requeued to pbs_server but were being deleted instead. (backported from 3.0.1)
  • e - Add a configure option --with-tcp-retry-limit to prevent potential 4+ hour hangs on pbs_server. We recommend --with-tcp-retry-limit=2 (backported from 3.0.1)
  • b - preserve the order on array strings in TORQUE, like the route_destinations for a routing queue (backported from 3.0.1)
  • b - fix bugzilla #111, multi-line environment variables causing errors in TORQUE (backported from 3.0.1)
  • b - allow apostrophes in Mail_Users attributes, as apostrophes are rare but legal email characters (backported from 3.0.1)
  • b - Fixed a problem in parse_node_token where the local static variable pt would be advanced past the end of the line input if there is no newline character at the end of the nodes file.
