August 28th DRMAA-wg Meeting Minutes
Hrabri Rajic, Andreas Haas, Peter Troeger, Dan Templeton, Roger Brobst
A. Meeting secretary for this meeting?
+ Roger Brobst
B. Acceptance of the last meeting minutes
+ July 31 minutes accepted without change request
The Language-Independent spec was mistakenly marked as a
new independent doc, not as a second stage GDF.22 doc update
Steven Newhouse has been contacted and has indicated that
the wg needs to add a few lines summarizing the changes
(this will not restart and timelines).
General consensus to add the requested information to LI spec.
AI: Hrabri has agreed to notify Steven that requesed
changes will be added.
AI: Hrabri has volunteered to summarize the changes and
and post summary for further discussion.
C. Presentation of updated IDL spec for OGF 21
+ Peter distributed link to updated IDL spec,
which now contains more details about reestablished sessions
and reaped jobs. Specifically, Section 9, page 23 has rearranged
text from the LI spec; and jobProgramStatus is now jobStatus.
There are no new semantics. Just more text, mostly copied.
The document is in the "OGF21" folder.
AI: Provide Peter with feedback on above changes
* Discussion about 5.16 InvalidJobException :
The job specified by the given job id does not exist,
or was already reaped by a call to Session::synchronize()
AI: Since the wait() description discusses reaping, it should
also be part of the exception description.
AI: Dan to update Java binding spec with the jobStatus method
AI: Although spec enumerates drmaa calls which may precede
drmaa_init(), it is desirable that the doc for the
*_control and *_job_ps routines reiterate that drmaa_init()
should be called previously.
Regarding OGF21 ..
Dan is planning on attending at least part of the time.
Peter has also requested a DRMAA session with 45min about
the IDL document and the expereince reports. No answer so far.
Rough consensus that that the OGF session would be a good
opportunity to clarify our intention of publishing IDL and
Java docs after the LI spec has been approved with the ADs
(to avoid misunderstandings about the wg future).
AI: Be clear that we're continuing the DRMAA work with the IDL spec.
Regarding coordination of public comment period (DRMAA, Torque) ...
+ Desirable to continue to gather feedback to ensure that
we follow the intent of comment period.
We have 2 months for the LI spec.
Possible contributors: Posnan guys, SAGA folks, Sun customers
