    Oct 24 14:29:23 2012 42676:2888 7 1.2.6 terminateSubElim: SELIM
    <name=C:\LSF_8.3\8.3\etc\elim.systeminfo.bat, pid=42620,
    group=0> is terminated.
    Oct 24 14:29:23 2012 42676:2888 4 1.2.6 checkSubElim: the SELIM
    <C:\LSF_8.3\8.3\etc\elim.systeminfo.bat> is killed for hanging
    longer than LSF_ELIM_BLOCKTIME<35>
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • Root cause:
    For Windows, all the elim's output are read in together. Need
    to clear the FD_SET after finishing reading the load string of
    each elim. Unlike Linux, which reads the complete load string
    in one function call, Windows use a big loop to read the load
    string and call the same function many times.  So FD_CLR is
    correct for Linux but not Windows.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Patch provided.
    
    The elim output string must end with one and only one '\n'
    without extra spaces!
    

Temporary fix
