Description

LoadLeveler is a job management system that allows users to run more jobs in less time by matching the jobs' processing needs with the available resources. LoadLeveler schedules jobs and provides functions for building, submitting, and processing jobs quickly and efficiently in a dynamic environment. Batch jobs can be submitted, either serial or parallel, to run in the background and require no input from the user.

Version 3.3 is supported on both AIX 5L V5.2 and V5.3. Enhancements include:

  • Increased job launch flexibility and processing options:
    • Administrators may define a number of LoadLeveler starter processes to be ready and waiting to handle job requests. Having this pool of ready processes reduces the time LoadLeveler needs to prepare jobs to run.
    • Both administrators and general users have more control over how environment variables are copied for a job. Reducing the number of environment variables LoadLeveler has to copy reduces the amount of time LoadLeveler needs to prepare jobs to run.
  • LoadLeveler allows administrators and users authorized by administrators to specify a time period during which specific node resources are reserved for exclusive use by particular users or groups of users. Normally, jobs wait in a dispatch queue until the resources they require become available. With advance reservation, jobs can be submitted to run in a reservation to reduce the wait time because the jobs have exclusive use of the reserved node resources as soon as the reservation period begins. A reservation can also be used to run a workload that needs to start or finish at a particular time.
  • The LoadLeveler Backfill scheduler allows jobs to be preempted so that a higher priority job step can run. Previously, this capability was available only under the Gang scheduler. With the Backfill scheduler, administrators may specify not only preemption rules for job classes, but also the method that LoadLeveler uses to preempt jobs.
  • LoadLeveler allows the staging of executables for "checkpointable" job steps. When the job step is started, the executable is copied to a specified directory on the node running the master task.
  • LoadLeveler allows administrators to specify a fixed system priority for a job step. The LoadLeveler Central Manager will not change this priority when it recalculates job priorities.
  • LoadLeveler allows a system priority threshold to be specified such that job steps can only run when their system priorities are higher than the threshold.
  • LoadLeveler allows administrators more control over the scheduling process: Normally, the LoadLeveler Central Manager automatically runs a scheduling algorithm at intervals specified in the configuration file. Now administrators can configure the Central Manager so that it runs the scheduling algorithm only when specifically instructed through the llrunscheduler command or ll_run_scheduler subroutine.
  • On AIX systems, LoadLeveler adds a job key to both AIX and LoadLeveler accounting records. This addition allows AIX and LoadLeveler accounting records to be correlated.
  • On AIX systems with device drivers and network adapters that support remote direct-memory access (RDMA), communication protocols may provide bulk transfer as a mechanism to optimize communication. LoadLeveler supports bulk data transfer for jobs that use either Internet Protocol or User Space communication mode.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

Operation by keyboard alone is a feature supported for people with disabilities.

Statement of direction

IBM intends to support workload balancing among multiple LoadLeveler clusters. Users will be able to submit and monitor jobs to more than one LoadLeveler cluster using a single set of commands. Administrators will be able to move idle jobs among multiple LoadLeveler clusters.

Additionally, IBM intends to support allowing jobs to utilize the memory affinity feature available in IBM POWER4™ and POWER5™ servers with their CPU architecture and the Resource Set (RSet) function available in AIX 5L for POWER.

Both the multicluster and affinity functions are planned to be available fourth quarter 2005.

On the Linux™ platforms currently available for LoadLeveler for Linux V3.2, IBM intends to provide the following functions:

  • Increased job launch flexibility and processing
  • Backfill preemption, except for suspend method
  • Reservation
  • Additional control over scheduling, including a new command and API to start the scheduling process and the ability to set job system priority.

This function is planned to be available on LoadLeveler for Linux third quarter 2005.

All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.

Extending coverage for a total of three years from date of acquisition may be elected.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions; and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your IS technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

IBM Operational Support Services — SoftwareXcel: No

Other support: pSeries SWMA

iSeries™ Software Maintenance applies: No

Sub-capacity pricing terms and conditions

To be eligible for sub-capacity pricing, the machine on which the eligible products are installed and running must be eligible for sub-capacity pricing terms and conditions. Software pricing at less than full machine capacity for eligible products apply when running:

  • AIX 5L V5.1, or later, on an IBM eServer pSeries 690 or equivalent partition-capable operating system and machine
  • OS/400® V5.1, or later, running on an IBM eServer iSeries server
  • Linux running in an LPAR under AIX 5L V5.1, OS/400 V5.1, or in a partition on an equivalent partition-capable operating system and server

Sub-capacity pricing for eligible products is based on the current Program pricing methodology, but the number of processors will be determined based on the sum of processors for all partitions where the program is defined (used). To obtain pricing at less than full machine capacity for eligible products, you are required to:

  • Install and use, when available, IBM's license use management program, which installs with eligible IBM programs.
  • Install available updates to the operating system and eligible products such that license use can be accurately managed.
  • If the use of sub-capacity pricing terms results in a reduced requirement for entitlements, you can reallocate the entitlement difference by distributing entitlements across a larger or different set of systems, or reserve them for future growth. There will be no refunds for these "freed up" entitlements. Subscription, Software Maintenance, and Support volumes and entitlements for existing contracts will continue at the same levels as the acquired licenses.

On/Off Capacity on Demand

To be eligible for On/Off Capacity on Demand pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware and the required contract — Z125-6907, Amendment for iSeries and pSeries Temporary Capacity On Demand — Software — must be signed prior to use.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate, but complementary, elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-additional-charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.

Variable charges: The applicable processor-based one-time charge will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the program is licensed for use. If the program is designated to a processor in a group for which no charge is listed, the charge of the next higher group listed applies. For movement to a machine in a higher group, an upgrade charge equal to the difference in the then-current charges between the two groups will apply. For movement to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of charges paid.
