2019.01 Update 6 Release

New Features and Enhancements

The following new features and enhancements were introduced this software release:

Product Internal Number Case Number Description
All VOV-9777 24039 Added "Last Dispatch" into the page jobqueue?page=buckets&. Prior to fix, it was showing "age", which is confusing as it gets updated on submission and job dispatch.
FlowTracer VOV-11793 25217 A new server parameter seatlic_max has been added that places an upper limit on the number of seat license features that can be used by a project.
The parameter can be set either in policy.tcl:
set config(seatlic) <max-seat-features>
or as a server configuration:
vtk_server_config seatlic_max <max-seat-features>

By default the value is unlimited.

FlowTracer VOV-12004 CS0120860 Set the provided shell variable value to zero, (export VOV_LICENSE_SHOW_VIOLATION=0), to suppress the license violation preamble when invoking vovsh commands.
FlowTracer VOV-12356   FlowTracer local resources may be created/updated using the vovresourcemgr command.
vovresourcemgr create foo -max 10 -local, vovresourcemgr set foo -max 10 -nolocal

Resolved Issues

The following issues were resolved in this release.

Product Internal Number Case Number Description
All VOV-12236   Fixed an issue leading to the following server logs:
"vovserver(3260) ERROR May 24 00:00:53 
Found host with different ip: 10.102.50.114 instead of 10.102.50.114 [host:903]"
All VOV-11253 25045 Improved the error messaging for the vtk_resourcemap_forget API command.
FlowTracer VOV-11835 AP29893 Fixed an issue where indirect slaves were consuming seat licenses under FlowTracer.
FlowTracer VOV-11834 CS0120713 Fixed an issue which resulted in an indirect slave being stopped or hung when a job running on it was stopped.
FlowTracer VOV-11874   Fixed an issue with FlowTracer and vovwxd on LSF where alerts of the form "Number of allowed slaves has reached limit... Consider increasing maxNormalClients in WX server, or max. slaves in vovwxd config..." would be continually generated.
FlowTracer VOV-10934 24730 Fixed the issue with custom color set in gui.tcl using vtk_transition_color_control are not getting reflected in vovconsole when node status changes to Failed or Valid.
FlowTracer VOV-11920   Fixed the issue with custom node color not getting reflected under set view when the color is set using vtk_nodestatus_set_color in gui.tcl
FlowTracer VOV-11890 CS0120807, CS0120788 If the vovserver receives a SIGTERM signal it will perform a graceful shutdown in a manner similar to autostop.
FlowTracer VOV-12420   In vovwxd, the user can set CONFIG(dequeueExtraSlavesEnable) 0 parameter in config.tcl which will stop the creation of "bkill" jobs for any pending slaves.

The user can also undefine the GetJobKillCmd procedure from vovlsf.tcl for the same purpose.

FlowTracer VOV-11873   To enable resources to be managed locally by FlowTracer when using an LSF backend via vovwxd enable the vovwxd.localresources parameter in the policy file and create the resources in FlowTracer using the vtk_resourcemap_set -local parameter.
FlowTracer VOV-11921   vovconsole behavior has been modified for stop/invalidate menu options so that all selected jobs and down-cone along with the jobs in nested sets will be stopped/invalidated hierarchically.
FlowTracer VOV-11837   vovwxd no longer uses reservations for resources. Instead, to enable resources to be managed locally by FlowTracer when using an LSF backend via vovwxd enable the vovwxd.localresources parameter in the policy file and create the resources in FlowTracer using the newly added vtk_resourcemap_set -local option.
FlowTracer VOV-11869 CS0120761 vovwxd should be used instead of vovlsfd. vovwxd no longer uses reservations. Instead, to enable resources to be managed locally by FlowTracer when using an LSF backend via vovwxd, enable the vovwxd.localresources parameter in the policy file and create the resources in FlowTracer using the vtk_resourcemap_set -local parameter.
