lsinfo [-h | -V]


By default, displays all LSF configuration information including resource names and their meanings, host types and models, and associated CPU factors known to the system.

By default, displays information about all resources. Resource information includes resource name, resource type, description, and the default sort order for the resource.

You can use resource names in task placement requests.

Use this command with options to selectively view configured resources, host types, and host models.


Displays resource information in a long multi-line format. Additional parameters are displayed including whether a resource is built-in or configured, and whether the resource value changes dynamically or is static. If the resource value changes dynamically then the interval indicates how often it is evaluated.
Displays information about all host models in the file lsf.shared.
Displays only information about host models that exist in the cluster.
Displays only information about configured resources.
Displays only information about configured host types.

Output for -l option

The -l option displays all information available about load indices.

Indicates whether the resource is numeric, string, or Boolean.
If the numeric value of the load index increases as the load it measures increases, such as CPU utilization (ut).
If the numeric value decreases as the load increases.
If the resource is not numeric.
The number of seconds between updates of that index. Load indices are updated every INTERVAL seconds. A value of 0 means the value never changes.
If BUILTIN is Yes, the resource name is defined internally by LIM. If BUILTIN is No, the resource name is site-specific defined externally by the LSF administrator.
If DYNAMIC is Yes the resource is a load index that changes over time. If DYNAMIC is No the resource represents information that is fixed such as the total swap space on a host. Resources are Static or Boolean.
Applies to numeric shared resources only. Indicates whether LSF releases the resource when a job using the resource is suspended. When a job using a shared resource is suspended, the resource is held or released by the job depending on the configuration of the RELEASE parameter in the lsf.shared file.

No indicates the resource is held. Yes indicates the resource is released.

If CONSUMABLE is Yes, the resource is a static or dynamic numeric resource that is specified as consumable in the Resource section of the lsf.shared file.
