NAME
       pbs_resources_sp2 - pbs resources on IBM	SP-2

DESCRIPTION
       This  page  summarizes the resources supported by PBS for the IBM SP-2.
       These resources are specified by	including them in the -l option	 argu-
       ment on the qsub	or qalter command or in	the PBS	job script.

RESOURCES
       nice   The  nice	 value	under which the	job is to be run.  Units: uni-
	      tary.

       walltime
	      Maximum amount of	real time during which the job can be  in  the
	      running state.  Units: time.

       arch   Specifies	 the  administrator  defined  system  architecture re-
	      quried.  This defaults to	whatever the PBS_MACH string is	set to
	      in "local.mk".  Units: string.

       host   Name  of host on which job should	be run.	 This resource is pro-
	      vided for	use by the site's scheduling policy.	The  allowable
	      values  and  effect  on job placement is site dependent.	Units:
	      string.

       nodes  Number and/or type of nodes to be	reserved for exclusive use  by
	      the  job.	  The  value is	one or more node_specs joined with the
	      '+' character, "node_spec[+node_spec...].	 Each node_spec	is  an
	      number  of  nodes	required of the	type declared in the node_spec
	      and a name or one	or more	properity or properities  desired  for
	      the  nodes.   The	 number,  the  name, and each properity	in the
	      node_spec	are separated by a colon ':'.  If no number is	speci-
	      fied, one	(1) is assumed.	 Units:	string.

	      The  name	 of  a node is its hostname.  The properities of nodes
	      are:

	      .	ppn=# specifying the number of processors per node  requested.
		Defaults to 1.

	      .	arbitrary  string assigned by the system administrator,	please
		check with your	administrator as to the	node names and proper-
		ities available	to you.

	      Examples:

	      .	To ask for 12 nodes of any type: -l nodes=12

	      .	To  ask	 for  2	 "server" nodes	and 14 other nodes (a total of
		16): -l	nodes=2:server+14
		The above consist of two node_specs "2:server" and "14".

	      .	To ask for (a) 1 node that is a	"server" and has a "hippi" in-
		terface,  (b)  10  nodes that are not servers, and (c) 3 nodes
		that have a large amount of memory an have hippi:
		-l nodes=server:hippi+10:noserver+3:bigmem:hippi

	      .	To ask for three nodes by name:
		-l nodes=b2005+b1803+b1813

	      .	To ask for 2 processors	on each	of four	nodes:
		-l nodes=4:ppn=2

	      .	To ask for 4 processors	on one node:
		-l nodes=1:ppn=4

	      .	To ask for 2 processors	on each	of two blue  nodes  and	 three
		processors on one red node:
		-l nodes=2:blue:ppn=2+red:ppn=3

       host   Allows  a	 user to specify the desired execution location.  This
	      resource is provided for use by the  site's  scheduling  policy.
	      The  allowable values and	effect on job placement	is site	depen-
	      dent.  Units: string.

       other  Allows a user to specify site specific  information.   This  re-
	      source is	provided for use by the	site's scheduling policy.  The
	      allowable	values and effect on job placement is site  dependent.
	      Units: string.

       software
	      Allows a user to specify software	required by the	job.   This is
	      useful if	certain	software packages are only available  on  cer-
	      tain  systems in the site.  This resource	is provided for	use by
	      the site's scheduling policy.  The allowable values  and	effect
	      on job placement is site dependent.  Units: string.

EXAMPLES
       qsub -l nodes=15,walltime=2:00:00 script

       or in a qsub script as a	directive:

       #PBS -l nodes=15,walltime=2:00:00

RESOURCE UNITS
       The resource values take	the following units:

       time    specifies a maximum time	period the resource can	be used.  Time
	       is expressed in seconds as an integer, or in the	form:
	       [[hours:]minutes:]seconds[.milliseconds]

       unitary The maximum amount of a resource	which is expressed as a	simple
	       integer.
