was recently trying to get some info from the XML output from a "qstat -j" and
noticed that for two running jobs, the s_rt value that had been supplied in two
different ways, appeared within two different "XPaths"
A job that had supplied the s_rt limit as a submission request sees
the XML place the
value at a "path" identifiable as
whereas a job which had had the s_rt limit added in, via a qalter
whilst still in the queue, saw it turn up as
I can see why the two would be different (because they are!) but, once
I had discovered
that there were two paths to the "same info", wondered if, once a job
was running and
so limits such as s_rt had become immutable, they would be better
represented by the
second form, ALONG with the first, if values had been specified that way.
Do the internal structures of the GE code maintain both "submitted"
and "allocated" values,
so that this might be possible ?
