MISER(1)							      MISER(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     miser - Miser resource manager

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     miser [-vd] -c maxCPUs -m maxMemory -f configFile | -C | -h

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Miser starts the miser daemon.  Miser is a	deterministic batch scheduling
     facility that can be used to balance batch	and interactive	cpu and	memory

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -v	  Verbose.  This option	results	in additional output.  It is useful in
	  conjunction with the -d option to help in diagnosing Miser
	  configuration	problems.

     -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.

     -c	maxCPUs
	  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.

     -m	maxMemory
	  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.

     -f	configFile
	  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.

OPERATION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The miser is a privileged command that starts the miser daemon.  Miser
     can be manually started from the command line with	appropriate
     options/config file(s).

     It	can also be conveniently started/stopped/cleaned up by using the
     /etc/init.d/miser script.	This script takes one of the following three
     parameters: {start|stop|cleanup}.

     /etc/init.d/miser start
	  Starts Miser daemon with the options and config file specified by
	  the script.

     /etc/init.d/miser stop
	  Kills	Miser daemon with -INT signal and calls	Miser daemon with -C
	  option to release reserved resources.

     /etc/init.d/miser cleanup
	  Call Miser daemon with -C option for releasing reserved resources.
	  This can be useful if	the Miser daemon is killed unintentionally.
