While performing routine weekly checks on our test cluster (it runs
Rocks 6.0 with CentOS 6.2), I noticed that all currently every job's
priority as '-nan' (running and waiting).

Uncertain of what caused this issue, I submitted a test job
'hello_world_serial.sh'. It seems to start out by indicating correct
priority but soon starts reporting '-nan'. The screenshots for the
test job are here:


I have restarted the sgemaster daemon on the front end via

   /etc/init.d/sgemaster.wigner stop
   /etc/init.d/sgemaster.wigner start

It doesn't seem to have helped.

Please advice.

Thank you for your time and help.
