autoLogout time spec 4 hours [10m,infinity] The period of inactivity after which the system automatically logs a user out of the browser interface. The minimum value for this parameter is 10 minutes.
autoRescheduleCount integer 4 0-10 Specifies the maximum number of reschedule attempts per job.
autoRescheduleOnNewHost boolean 1 0/1 Controls whether auto-rescheduling will avoid the same host (default) or just the tasker, allowing the job to run on a different tasker on the same host. Does not apply to auto-rescheduling based on exit status (see exit-status docs).
autoRescheduleThreshold time spec 0s 0s-60s This parameter deals with jobs that fail quickly. If the failure time is less or equal to the specified value, the job is automatically resubmitted at high priority, with the name of the failing host as a negated resource, so that the job will be placed on a different host (or tasker, configurable) for the next run. If the autoRescheduleThreshold is 0, automatic resubmission is disabled. A maximum of 4 auto-reschedules are permitted by default. This maximum can be controlled via the autoRescheduleCount parameter. Host/tasker behavior can be controlled via the autoRescheduleOnNewHost parameter. Does not apply to auto-rescheduling based on exit status (see exit-status docs).
autostop.timeout   60s   This parameter provides a timeout for the execution of all scripts installed in the SWD/autostop directory. The autostop function is called automatically upon shutdown of the vovserver and all scripts have up to the timeout to executed and exit. This time period is provided to allow autostop scripts to communicate with the vovserver before exiting, while protecting against a problematic script that fails to exit. Once the timeout has been reached, the vovserver continues with its exit procedure, and any autostop scripts that have opened a connection to the vovserver will likely fail. Default can be specified in policy.tcl.

Example: set config(autostop.timeout) 120

This parameter can also be set using the VTK API. Example: vtk_server_config autostop.timeout 120

autoShutdown timespec 2w [15m,infinity] A time specification. This parameter controls how long the server must wait since the last job start before shutting down. If the value is 0, the server never shuts down. The default value is 2 weeks (2w). The minimum acceptable shutdown period is 15 minutes.

disablefileaccess boolean 0 If this parameter is greater than 0 (zero), the server will not access any file that is not under $VOVDIR or $VNCSWD. By 'access' we mean any operation on the file like stat(), open(), access(). This is a protection to prevent a possible server freeze if it tries to access files on an dead NFS server. If this parameter is greater than 1 (one), then not only the server disables access to files, but also the CGI clients that could possibly show file information will disable such functionality. In summary:
  • Under normal conditions, set this parameter to 0
  • If you are concerned about the vovserver blocking on a bad NFS mount, set this parameter to 1
  • If you want maximum information security, set this parameter to 2.

httpSecure boolean 1   This should be set to 1 or "enable" if you use the browser user interface. If it is set to "0", browser users do not have to authenticate, and hence the server does not know their login identity. The default value is 1. When this parameter is 1, the server requires basic authentication to serve most of its pages. By setting this parameter to 0 (zero), any access via the HTTP protocol is allowed, but the server will not know user's login identity. This is provided for backwards compatibility, but the use of the value is discouraged. If this parameter is set to 2, or "disable", or any other number, then the HTTP interface is completely disabled,

If the NFS server and the VOV server are running on the same host, you can set this delay to zero. For tight edit-compile loops, you are advised to set this delay to zero and to do the editing of the primary inputs on the same machine that runs the VOV server, so that there is not NFS cache effect.

saveToDiskPeriod time spec 2 hours [10m,infinity] This parameter controls the period of recurrent saves to disk of all the trace information. If the trace is very large (>400MB) the recurrent save may take a long time. The minimum value for this parameter is 10 minutes. The default value is 2 hours. A value of zero or less disables the periodic saving.
sched.busy.thresh integer 3 [2--1000000] If the delay between poll() is more than this threshold, then the server is considered to be 'busy'
sched.maxpostponedjobs integer 10000 [1--1000000] Exit dispatch loop after this number of jobs have been postponed, indicating a loaded or busy farm
sched.megapoll.threshold integer 100 [5--10000000] Threshold that defines how many clients are needed to declare that we are in a 'mega-poll' situation
sched.taskerstats.enable boolean 0 0/1 Enable scheduler statistics for taskers (used in unusedhw.cgi)
schedMaxEffort integer 20 5 50 If the scheduler becomes expensive, i.e. if it takes more than 0.02 seconds to dispatch jobs, the vovserver adaptively skips some scheduling cycle to give time to the clients to interact with the vovserver. In this way, the scheduler effectively changes from a pure event-driven behavior to a cycle-based behavior. The cycle is controlled by the schedMaxEffort variable, which sets the ratio between the effort spent in the scheduler and the effort spend elsewhere. Example: If the schedMaxEffort is 20 (meaning 20% of time should be spent in the scheduler) and the scheduler time is 0.1s, then the scheduler will be called no more frequently than once every 0.5 seconds (0.1*100/20=0.5)

tasker.childProcessCleanup boolean 0 0/1 If TRUE, taskers should kill all of a job's child processes when that job exits (i.e. assume child processes running after jobs exit are zombie processes); default is FALSE.
slave.childProcessCleanupExclusions string     If set in conjunction with slave.childProcessCleanup, then slaves should kill all of a job's child processes when that job exits, except for those named here in a comma separated list. default is ""
tasker.max.reserve integer 10 [0--100] Maximum number of reservations per tasker
tasker.maxWaitToReconnect timespec 3m00s [5s--1y00d] Time to wait after losing connection to server before reconnecting again.
tasker.props.enable boolean 0 0/1 Enable saving of message properties for all taskers
slave.uninterruptableSignalCascades boolean 0 0/1 if TRUE, slaves will ignore incoming job control requests if an existing request is in-process; default is FALSE.
taskerheartbeat integer 60 [1--300] Default heartbeat for taskers, in seconds. Can be overridden for individual taskers via vovtaskermgr configure or by starting the vovtaskers with the -U argument
ssl.enable boolean 0 0/1 Enable SSL for rest web server
ssl.enableRawUrlOnHttp boolean 1 0/1 Enable /raw url's for SSL with REST server
substituteArrayIdInResources boolean 0 0/1 Substitute references to @ARRAYID@ in resource string with array ID (default: 0). Caution should be used because this will result in a job queue bucket being created for each submission of a job array.
substituteArrayIndexInResources boolean 0 0/1 Substitute references to @INDEX@ in resource string with array index (default: 0). Caution should be used because this will result in a job queue bucket being created for each job in an array.
substituteJobIdInResources boolean 0 0/1 Substitute references to @JOBID@ and @IDINT@ in resource string with job ID (default: 0). Caution should be used because this will result in a job queue bucket being created for each job.
switchToExtBufThresh integer 100000 [10k,1...31] In bytes, this parameter controls the size of the internal buffer used for vtk_set_list_elements_enhanced. If the size exceeds this parameter, then vovserver switches to an external buffer.
tasker.attachDetachSim integer -1 [-1--1] reserved for internal use only
tasker.authorization.delay integer 5 [0--60] Minimum time in seconds that vovserver waits before authorizing new taskers
taskerheartbeat integer 60 [1--300] Default heartbeat for taskers, in seconds. Can be overridden for individual taskers via vovtaskermgr configure or by starting the vovtasker with the -U argument
tasksMaxEffort integer 20 [5--50] Percent of time to give to maintenance tasks
thread.preempt.max integer 40 [10--200] Max number of concurrent threads for auxiliary preemption work like vovlmremove

thread.service.min.slaves integer 500 [0--100000] Min Number of taskers to activate safe threads
timeTolerance time spec 0 [0,600] Control the time tolerance of the server. The default value of 0 may be too strict for some networks. You will usually need to have ntp running to synchronize the clocks to use zero, but this is the best practice. Values up to about 3 seconds will not impose much performance penalty.
