Jobtypes and Applications / Re: resource reservation on agendas?
« Last post by vicken on January 11, 2016, 11:07:49 PM »
hmm, ok. word

Actually, I found I could get the behavior I was after with using some python as the callback trigger...

unblock_code = 'jobid = str(qb.jobid())\n\
args = ["%s:%i" % (jobid, work) for work in range({0},{1})]\n\
qb.workunblock(*args)'.format(start, end+1)

callbacks.append({'triggers':'done-work-self-convert', 'language': 'python', 'code':unblock_code})

but actually, speaking of unblocking the jobs I have another question along those lines.

Say I have a job that is submitted as blocked, onn the job itself but also on some of it's work agenda items.

If a user ten selects the job in WrangleView and unblocks the job, the work items also unblock. Is this an intentional/desired behavior? To me, it seems like it should just unblock the job, not the work items (which should be unblocked explicitly from the Frames/Work panel)

General / Re: The job that wouldn't die!
« Last post by jburk on December 22, 2015, 07:59:15 PM »
There were some bugs in the early days of the 'dying' state that have been fixed since.  The dying state is intended to be "I've asked for this job to be killed, but the workers haven't all reported that they've successfully shut down the instances".

I'd suggest that you "remove" the job from Qube, and restart the worker service on those hosts that still think they're running it.   If that doesn't solve it, are you able to open a support ticket (still on valid support & maintenance)?  Qube 6.6. added a "data integrity check" menu to WranglerView, but since you're running an older version you may have to resort to SQL to get rid of this entirely.

Jobtypes and Applications / Re: callback/dependency between an individual job work items

Think it's tripping up on the "*" in the code, I don't the qube callback language can access individual agenda items.

Don't bother unblocking all the rest of the frames, unblock the entire job:

Code: [Select]
cb = {
    'triggers': 'complete-job-preFlight',
    'language': 'qube',
    'code': 'unblock-self'
}

GUI / Re: Monitoring CPU usage on every worker

We don't track historical hardware metrics in Qube.  There are so many products out there already that make that their core functionality; ganglia,etc, we feel like we'd be re-inventing the wheel.

We don't support reservations at the agenda level; it's one of the ideas we keep kicking around for Qube 7, but it's a substantial change.

For now, you should continue as you were with separate jobs and inter-job dependencies.

Jobtypes and Applications / resource reservation on agendas?
« Last post by vicken on December 18, 2015, 06:34:24 PM »
Ehh guys. I'd like some specific resource to not reserve license resources since I know they wont need them.  however the remaining agenda/work items will.

Is it possible to have specific resources reserved (or override the job reservations) on specific agenda items? or if not, is there a between/recommended way to get the behavior im looking for? Some context: currently i have the "fast process" running as a separate job, which triggers a callback on a dependent job (which will require extra resources that i want to reserve). i've been looking into folding this into all into one job and just setting up the dependencies between the work items.

GUI / Monitoring CPU usage on every worker
« Last post by LuccaDe on December 14, 2015, 09:23:29 PM »
Hi,

I'm newbie in Qube and I have question about one feature which could make my job easier a lot :)

I think it would be great to have an option which shows CPU usage for last one or two hours when graph is visible for every worker at the same time. Something like new tab in workers section. Thank to that option I would be able to find malfunctioning nodes with a quick glance.

I've serched qube and manual but I wasn't able to find such option.

So my questions is that would I be able to find feature like that? or maybe there is any way so I could add it to my WranglerView?

All the best

Jobtypes and Applications / callback/dependency between an individual job work items
« Last post by vicken on December 14, 2015, 04:55:22 PM »
Ehh whats up. I'd like to send a job such that the first agenda item runs before the rest (it's writing out files/doing prep work to be used by the remaining "real work items").

I have been trying something to the affect of the following code below. the individual agenda items are blocked as i expect, but something is wrong with my callback trigger, so the remaining work/agenda items don't unblock.

work_items  = qb.genframes('pre, 1-10')

# block all frames except for "pre"
for w in work_items:
    if w['name'] != 'pre':
        w['status'] = 'blocked'

job = qb.Job()
# job setup
...
...

# im really not sure of the correct syntax here, especially of the code string.
job['callbacks'] = [{'triggers':'done-work-self-pre', 'language':'qube':, 'code':'unblock-work-self-*'}]

I suspect i may be missing somethign obvious entirely. thanks!
