Checking connection status to cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I was just wondering if anyone has any idea on how to efficiently submit multiple jobs to HPC from a different application. Currently, every time we submit a job to HPC from our application, we do the following process:

    1. HpcScheduler.Connect

    2. HpcScheduler.CreateJob

    3. HpcScheduler.CreateTask

    4. HpcScheduler.Dispose

    When we submit multiple jobs (talking about 100+ jobs), I noticed that port 5802, 5999 and 443 are used but 5802 is not being released right away after Dispose() or Close(), which may (or may not) cause port exhaustion.

    I was thinking of doing the Connect() only when they start up the application then just add jobs. However, I am wondering what happens if the connection gets lost in the middle of submitting jobs. Is there a way to check the connection status of a scheduler? Or any advice on how to implement this would be appreciated.

  • Hi JSF2018,

    Which version of HPC Pack are you running on? The port should be closed shortly after disposing the scheduler object. For the connection status, the scheduler has built-in retry logic to handle connection lost, you may just connect it once and use it for all jobs.
