Hi Sam,


Thank you for this information!  


Can you please let me know what is the exact command that is used by Rocoto that is causing this time out?


Is it “scontrol show job …”?


It will be useful to create stand alone tests (which you may already have).

Subject: Fix for Rocoto's temporarily "unavailable" jobs


HWRF/HMON people,


Recently, scontrol has sporadically taken longer than Rocoto's built-in limit of 30 seconds to run.  That leads to jobs being in an "unavailable" state until scontrol speeds up.  I have a modified version of Rocoto that has an 80 second timeout.  This fix is on top of the one that detects the "OUT_OF_MEMORY" state jobs.


Please let us know if this fixes the problems:


module use /mnt/lfs3/projects/hwrf-vd/soft/modulefiles/

For RC4:     module load rocoto/1.3.0-RC4-morestates-longtimeout

For RC3:     module load rocoto/1.3.0-RC3-morestates-longtimeout
