miser [-vd] -c maxCPUs -m maxMemory -f configFile | -C | -h
Miser starts the miser daemon. Miser is a deterministic batch scheduling
facility that can be used to balance batch and interactive cpu and memory
-v Verbose. This option results in additional output. It is useful in
conjunction with the -d option to help in diagnosing Miser
-d This option requests debug output. Miser does not relinquish the
terminal. With this option turned on output is directed to screen
instead of system log.
This is the maximum number of CPUs that miser can use. It is also
the maximum number of CPUs that any resource segment of the system
queue can reserve.
This is the maximum amount of memory that miser can use. It is also
the maximum memory that any resource segment of the system queue can
reserve. Memory reserved for miser is allocated from physical
memory. The amount of memory that miser use, should be less than
the total physical memory leaving enough memory for kernel use.
Also, it is recommended that the system should have at least the
amount of swap space as configured for miser, so that if miser
memory is in full use, system will have enough swap space to move
previous non miser submitted processes out of the way.
This option specifies the location of the configuration file.
-C This option can be used to release any miser reserved resources
after miser daemon is killed and before it is restarted.
-h Print the command's usage message.
