HPC Pack: Determining Cores to be allocated in Activation Filter RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm running a cluster with Windows HPC Pack 2016 and am working on a custom Activation Filter for an application. Unfortunately the application needs to have the number of cores specified in the command line. The cluster has compute nodes with various core counts and I want to be able to properly prepare a task, during Activation Filter 'time', with the a command line in which the correct amount of cores being allocated is specified.

    Unfortunately during Activation Filter, the parameter passed to the filter that specifies 'Resource Count' , seems to just count Nodes, and not Cores. I'm unable to determine which node in specific is being specified to be able to retrieve the core count for the purpose described. I've tried probing all node cores during this step but at this time they are not allocated to the job yet.

    The question is: In the Activation Filter, how can I determine the amount of cores that will be allocated to the job once the filter terminates successfully?
