8.2.0 and the Art of Version Numbering

on Fri, 09/05/2014 - 07:28

Univa Grid Engine was released in its newest version 8.2.0 delivering a whole set of exiting enhancements. Two prominent developments, the Microsoft Windows native native support and the Qmaster Read-Only Thread Pool, mark both, major feature improvements and a fundamental evolution of the code base. This drove our decision to award this release with the 8.2 release number. In fact, a 9.0 would have been justified as well but upgrading from an 8.1.x release to 8.2 is still a well contained process and we have further developments on the roadmap which will deserve the 9.0 at least as much.

Grid Engine Job Submission Verifier (JSV) using Go

on Thu, 04/24/2014 - 13:22

Posted by David Chin

Dan Gruber at Univa wrote a Go API for Univa Grid Engine job submission verifiers (JSV). His testing indicated that it was a fair bit faster than TCL or Perl, the recommended JSV languages for a production environment.

I decided it was a good enough time as any to dabble a little in Go, seeing as I had a simple problem to solve. Users occasionally make mistakes, and submit parallel jobs without requesting a parallel environment with the appropriate number of slots.
