New Maui Snapshot Improves Open Source Resource Ma

Amber Webb writes "Cluster Resources recently released a new Maui snapshot that fixes a number of internal job management issues, improves fault handling and logging, and updates a number of communication protocols to allow better interaction with peer services.

This snapshot also follows a new version formatting that includes explicit snapshot version information at runtime. The formatting means that administrators can issue a "maui --version" or "showq --version" and see both the Maui release and snapshot version info for the installed package. Based upon feedback from the user community, the formatting change is intended to let administrators know the exact version of Maui they are using. Both TORQUE and Moab previously used this version formatting system.

Please continue to submit patches, suggestions, and comments so we can continue to enhance this product.

The latest Maui 3.2.6 patch 14 snapshot is now available for download at
