Subject Re: DUCC: Unable to do "Fixed" type of Reservation
Date Thu, 31 Mar 2016 16:29:13 GMT
Hi Reshu,

Reserve type allows users to allocate an unconstrained resource. Because
reserve allocations are not constrained by cgroup containers, in v2.x these
allocations were restricted to be an entire machine.

Fixed type allocations, which are always associated with a specific user
process, have CPU and memory constrained by cgroups, if cgroups are enabled
and properly configured. If DUCC does not recognize cgroup support for a
node it falls back to monitoring memory use and killing processes that
exceed the specified threshold above requested allocation size. CGroup
status for each node is shown on the System->Machines page.

Ubuntu locates the cgroup folder differently from Red Hat and Suse OS. DUCC
v2 does have a property to specify this location, but you have found
another bug, this time hopefully only in the documentation.

The default value for this property is:
To override, put a different entry in
