Capping the number of concurrent jobs ... Keeping the load up to the cap RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working with a Automotive OEM.  I am trying to get 150 CAD Batch jobs through HPC. I want to keep the it loaded with 150 running jobs and I want to make sure it does not exceed 150.

    Is the activation filter the proper place to put this logic. I am seeing extra jobs slip through. I am also seeing the number of running jobs slowly trickle down over the course of maybe 20 minutes before it get completely refilled.

    Or is there a way I can dedicate 150 nodes, run the jobs on those nodes, and then un-dedicate them as soon as all the jobs make it through?

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

  • Yes, activation filter can help you on this but you need write your activation filter, there are samples available.
