A Qube job has a "kind" parameter; this is a string which can be set to any value the user desires.
It's mostly used to say "Only run one of this kind of a job on a worker at once". This tells the queuing system to filter out all hosts which have this kind of job already running.
So when you submit a job, you can do this to keep only one of your job's kind on a host:
WranglerView / ArtistView submission example:
- set the job's kind to
myKind(or any other value you want)
- set the job's requirements to
not(job.kind in host.duty)
qbsub --kind myKind --requirements "not(job.kind in host.duty.kind)" ...
The cool thing is you can do it with jobtypes as well: (only run 1 myCustomJobType job on a worker at once)
qbsub --type myCustomJobType --requirements "not(host.duty.type has myCustomJobType)" ...
