Summary

Spectrum LSF File and Directory Checker

Objective

  • LSF File and Directory Permission Checker:
Commands and daemons often generate error messages because of permission restrictions that are not obvious permission problems. This permission checker helps you check LSF permissions, helping reduce your troubleshooting time.
  • LSF File and Directory I/O Checker:
Fast and reliable access to LSF dependent files and directories is critical for LSF cluster's performance. This tool will check a list of predefined LSF files and directories to demonstrate how the target I/O subsystem performed for handling I/O workloads.
  • LSF Data File Checker
Check the status of LSF data files that are located under the LSF work directory. For example:
     
       - Check LSF event files
       - Checklsb.events file size
       - Check the number of lsb.events* files
       - Show event lock file timestamp, contents, mbd process
       - Warn if the number of lsb.events* files exceeds the predefined configurable threshold in tool
       - Warn if the size of lsb.events file exceeds the predefined configurable threshold in tool
Check LSF info directory
       - Show the value of MAX_INFO_DIRS if set otherwise show not set
       - Show total number of info files
