Resources, in collaboration with the TORQUE* user community, recently
released version 1.2.0p6 of TORQUE Resource Manager – a
resource manager built on the original OpenPBS, which includes over
1,200 patches to make it more scalable and stable. The newest TORQUE
version enables expanded configuration and management.

1.2.0p6 enables MOM configuration with features contributed by USC
and OSC. New features include:

  • Improved
    rapid start-up

  • Direct
    support for external scheduler extensions

  • New
    'shell-us-arg' patch (OSC)

  • File
    recovery failure messages (USC)

1.2.0p6 also includes a reworked MOM-server state management system.
The improved management system lets TORQUE perform tasks such as:

  • Consolidate
    node state changes

  • Force
    a health check script when an update state is forced

  • Improve
    pbsnodes 'offline' management

Resources wishes to thank all those who continue their efforts in
contributing to TORQUE Resource Manager. Thanks to these
contributions, TORQUE has become increasingly stable, providing a
reliable open source resource manager. Those who wish to contribute
