       pbs_statnode - obtain status of pbs nodes

       #include	<pbs_error.h>
       #include	<pbs_ifl.h>

       struct  batch_status  *pbs_statnode(int connect,	 char *id,  struct at-
       trl *attrib, char *extend)

       void pbs_statfree(struct	batch_status *psj)

       Issue a batch request to	obtain the status of a PBS node	or nodes.

       A Status	Node batch request is generated	and sent to  the  server  over
       the  connection	specified  by  connect	which  is  the return value of

       The id is the name of a node or the null	string.	  If  id  specifies  a
       node  name,  the	 status	of that	node will be returned.	If the id is a
       null string (or null pointer), the status of all	nodes  at  the	server
       will be returned.

       In  TORQUE  2.1.0,  if  the id starts with a ":"	and followed by	a node
       property, all nodes with	that property are returned; creating  a	 "node
       group"  functionality.	The  string ":ALL" is specially	handled	and is
       the same	as passing a null string.

       The parameter, attrib, is a pointer to an attrl structure which is  de-
       fined in	pbs_ifl.h as:

	   struct attrl	{
	       struct attrl *next;
	       char	    *name;
	       char	    *resource;
	       char	    *value;

       The  attrib  list is terminated by the first entry where	next is	a null
       pointer.	 If attrib is given, then only the attributes in the list  are
       returned	 by  the  server.  Otherwise, all the attributes of a node are
       returned.  When an attrib list is  specified,  the  name	 member	 is  a
       pointer to a attribute name.  The supported attribute names relating to
       nodes are "state", "properties",	"np", "ntype", "jobs",	"status",  and
       "note".	 The  resource	member	is not used and	must be	a pointer to a
       null string.  The value member should aways be  a  pointer  to  a  null

       The  parameter,	extend,	 is reserved for implementation	defined	exten-

       The return value	is a pointer to	a  list	 of  batch_status  structures,
       which is	defined	in pbs_ifl.h as:

	   struct batch_status {
	       struct batch_status *next;
	       char		   *name;
	       struct attrl	   *attribs;
	       char		   *text;

       It is up	the user to free the structure when no longer needed, by call-
       ing pbs_statfree().

       qstat(1B) and pbs_connect(3B)

       When the	batch request generated	by pbs_statnode()  function  has  been
       completed  successfully	by  a  batch server, the routine will return a
       pointer to the batch_status structure.  Otherwise, a  null  pointer  is
       returned	and the	error code is set in the global	integer	pbs_errno.
