bclusters

Displays information about IBM Spectrum LSF multicluster capability

Synopsis

bclusters [-app] [-w]
bclusters [-h | -V]

Description

For the job forwarding model, displays a list of LSF multicluster capability queues together with their relationship with queues in remote clusters.

For the resource leasing model, displays remote resource provider and consumer information, resource flow information, and connection status between the local and remote cluster.

Options

-app
Displays available application profiles in remote clusters.
-w
Wide format. Displays the information in a wide format.
-h
Prints command usage to stderr and exits.
-V
Prints LSF release version to stderr and exits.

Output: Job forwarding information

Displays a list of LSF multicluster capability queues together with their relationship with queues in remote clusters.

Information that is related to the job forwarding model is displayed under the heading Job Forwarding Information.

LOCAL_QUEUE
Name of a local LSF multicluster capability send-jobs or receive-jobs queue.
JOB_FLOW
Indicates direction of job flow.
send

The local queue is a LSF multicluster capability send-jobs queue (SNDJOBS_TO is defined in the local queue).

recv
The local queue is a LSF multicluster capability receive-jobs queue (RCVJOBS_FROM is defined in the local queue).
REMOTE
For send-jobs queues, shows the name of the receive-jobs queue in a remote cluster.

For receive-jobs queues, always a dash (-).

CLUSTER
For send-jobs queues, shows the name of the remote cluster that contains the receive-jobs queue.

For receive-jobs queues, shows the name of the remote cluster that can send jobs to the local queue.

STATUS
Indicates the connection status between the local queue and remote queue.
ok
The two clusters can exchange information and the system is properly configured.
disc
Communication between the two clusters is not established. The disc status might occur because no jobs are waiting to be dispatched, or because the remote management host cannot be located.
reject
The remote queue rejects jobs from the send-jobs queue. The local queue and remote queue are connected and the clusters communicate, but the queue-level configuration is not correct. For example, the send-jobs queue in the submission cluster points to a receive-jobs queue that does not exist in the remote cluster.

If the job is rejected, it returns to the submission cluster.

Output: Resource lease information

Displays remote resource provider and consumer information, resource flow information, and connection status between the local and remote cluster.

Information that is related to the resource leasing model is displayed under the heading Resource Lease Information.

REMOTE_CLUSTER

For borrowed resources, name of the remote cluster that is the provider.

For exported resources, name of the remote cluster that is the consumer.

RESOURCE_FLOW

Indicates direction of resource flow.

IMPORT

Local cluster is the consumer and borrows resources from the remote cluster (HOSTS parameter in one or more local queue definitions includes remote resources).

EXPORT

Local cluster is the provider and exports resources to the remote cluster.

STATUS
Indicates the connection status between the local and remote cluster.
ok
LSF multicluster capability jobs can run.
disc
No communication between the two clusters. The disc status might be a temporary situation or might indicate a LSF multicluster capability configuration error.
conn
The two clusters communicate, but the lease is not established. The conn status is typically a temporary situation, lasting only until jobs are submitted.

Output: Remote cluster application information

The bcluster -app command displays information that is related to application profile configuration under the heading Remote Cluster Application Information. Application profile information is only displayed for the job forwarding model. The bclusters command does not show local cluster application profile information.

REMOTE_CLUSTER
The name of the remote cluster.
APP_NAME
The name of the application profile available in the remote cluster.
DESCRIPTION
The description of the application profile.
