Host_conf  reflects  the  format of the template file for the execution
       host configuration.  Via the -ae and -me options of the  qconf(1)  com-
       mand,  you  can add execution hosts and modify the configuration of any
       execution host in the cluster. Default execution host entries are added
       automatically as soon as a sge_execd(8) registers to sge_qmaster(8) for
       the very first time from a certain host. The qconf(1) -sel  switch  can
       be  used to display a list of execution host being currently configured
       in your Univa Grid Engine system. Via the -se option you can print  the
       execution host configuration of a specified host.

       The  special  hostname  "global"  can  be used to define cluster global

       Note, Univa Grid Engine allows backslashes (\) be used to  escape  new-
       line  (\newline) characters. The backslash and the newline are replaced
       with a space (" ") character before any interpretation.

       The format of a host_conf file is defined as follows:

       The execution hosts name as defined for host_name in sge_types(1).

       A comma separated list of scaling values to be applied to each or  part
       of  the  load values being reported by the sge_execd(8) on the host and
       being defined in the cluster global "host"  complex  (see  complex(5)).
       The  load  scaling  factors are intended to level hardware or operating
       system specific differences between execution hosts.

       The syntax of a load factor specification is as follows: First the name
       of the load value (as defined in the "host" complex) is given and, sep-
       arated by an equal sign, the load scaling value is provided. No  blanks
       are allowed in between the load_scaling value string.

       The  parameter load_scaling is not meaningful for the definition of the
       "global" host.

       complex_values defines quotas for resource attributes managed via  this
       host.  Each  complex attribute is followed by an "=" sign and the value
       specification compliant with  the  complex  attribute  type  (see  com-
       plex(5)).  Quota specifications are separated by commas.

       The  quotas  are  related  to the resource consumption of all jobs on a
       host in the case of consumable resources (see complex(5) for details on
       consumable  resources)  or they are interpreted on a per job slot basis
       in the case of non-consumable resources. Consumable resource attributes
       are  commonly  used to manage free memory, free disk space or available
       floating software  licenses  while  non-consumable  attributes  usually
       define distinctive characteristics like type of hardware installed.
       and the load display in the qmon(1) queue control dialog (activated  by
       clicking  on  a  queue  icon  while the "Shift" key is pressed) provide
       detailed information on the actual availability of consumable resources
       and on the origin of the values taken into account currently.

       Note  also:  The  resource  consumption  of  running jobs (used for the
       availability calculation) as well as the resource requests of the  jobs
       waiting  to  be  dispatched  either  may  be derived from explicit user
       requests during job submission (see the -l option to qsub(1)) or from a
       "default"  value  configured for an attribute by the administrator (see
       complex(5)).  The -r option to qstat(1) can be used for retrieving full
       detail on the actual resource requests of all jobs in the system.

       For  non-consumable  resources  Univa  Grid  Engine simply compares the
       job's attribute requests with the corresponding specification  in  com-
       plex_values taking the relation operator of the complex attribute defi-
       nition into account (see complex(5)).  If the result of the  comparison
       is "true", the host is suitable for the job with respect to the partic-
       ular attribute. For parallel jobs each job slot to  be  occupied  by  a
       parallel task is meant to provide the same resource attribute value.

       Note:  Only  numeric  complex  attributes  can be defined as consumable
       resources and hence non-numeric attributes are always handled on a  per
       job slot basis.

       The  default  value  for  this parameter is NONE, i.e. no administrator
       defined resource attribute quotas are associated with the host.

       This entry cannot be configured but is only  displayed  in  case  of  a
       qconf(1)  -se command. All load values are displayed as reported by the
       sge_execd(8) on the host. The load values are enlisted in a comma sepa-
       rated  list.  Each load value start with its name, followed by an equal
       sign and the reported value.

       Note: Deprecated, may be removed in future release.
       This entry cannot be configured but is only  displayed  in  case  of  a
       qconf(1)  -se  command. Its value is the number of processors which has
       been detected by sge_execd(8) on the corresponding host.

       The format is equivalent to load_scaling (see above),  the  only  valid
       attributes  to  be scaled however are cpu for CPU time consumption, mem
       for Memory consumption aggregated over the life-time of jobs and io for
       data  transferred via any I/O devices. The default NONE means "no scal-
       ing", i.e. all scaling factors are 1.

       The user_lists parameter contains a comma separated list of  so  called
       user  access lists as described in access_list(5).  Each user contained
       in at least one of the enlisted access lists has access to the host. If

       The projects parameter contains a comma separated list of projects that
       have access to the host. Any projects  not  in  this  list  are  denied
       access  to  the  host.  If  set  to NONE (the default), any project has
       access that is not specifically excluded via  the  xprojects  parameter
       described  below.  If  a  project is in both the projects and xprojects
       parameters, the project is denied access to the host.

       The xprojects parameter contains a comma  separated  list  of  projects
       that  are  denied  access to the host. If set to NONE (the default), no
       projects are denied access other than those denied access based on  the
       projects  parameter  described  above.   If  a  project  is in both the
       projects and xprojects parameters, the project is denied access to  the

       The report_variables parameter contains a comma separated list of vari-
       ables that shall be written  to  the  reporting  file.   The  variables
       listed  here  will  be written to the reporting file when a load report
       arrives from an execution host.

       Default settings can be done in the global host. Host specific settings
       for report_variables will override settings from the global host.
