For complex and rarely used packaged you are often to nasty surprises. Also some packagers are pretty perverted and add to the package additional dependencies or configure is is a completely bizarre way.They are typically volunteers and nobody controls what they are doing.These options can be added to the self-extracting packages. Install torque on a single node Centos 6.4 Discngine PBS is widely used as queuing system on small size to huge clusters.This is just a little post to resume somehow all installation steps necessary to get a single node torque server running on Centos 6.4 (64bit). You can definitely manage intelligently a heavy workload on a single machine, but here we want to do this mainly for having a development framework around torque / PBS for bigger clusters..it'll just be a sort of testing environment.Next, lets set up the server process; in the following, replace SERVER.
If you get any errors at this point, Id suggest stopping any running processes, and restart them one by one in this order.This bit seemed missing from the default install, and it took me a while to figure it out (again).If the machine youre installing Torque on doesnt have an official FQDN, a simple work-around is to invent one and assign it to the machines network IP.I prefer to use FQDNs so that its easier later to add other compute nodes, job submission nodes, etc.The following also sets up the server process to allow user root to change configurations in the database.
