Description (last modified by Nicklas Nordborg)

This would be a feature to make it easier for developers to implement and test new scripts and pipelines. Instead of going through an OpenGrid or Slurm queue manager a dedicated development machine (this could for example be a virtual machine) could be used to start the job scripts directly. The standard commands could be replaced with something like:

  • qsub <script> --> nohup <script> &
  • qstat and qacct --> ps and maybe read from a special status file
  • qdel --> kill -- -<taskid>

Added the DIRECT cluster type. The engine is currently a copy of the Open grid engine.

Submitting a job should now work as well as getting basic status information.

Added another wrapper script run.sh for starting, error handling
and cleanup while running the actual job.

Aborting a job has been implemented.

It should be good enough for development and testing.
