Enabling IBM PE Runtime Edition for LSF

Complete the following steps to enable the Platform LSF integration with the IBM Parallel Environment Runtime Edition (IBM PE Runtime Edition).


  1. In lsf.conf, set LSF_PE_NETWORK_NUM.

    Specify a value between 0 and 8 to set the number of InfiniBand networks on the host. If the number is changed, run lsadmin reconfig and badmin mbdrestart to make the change take effect

    LSF_PE_NETWORK_NUM must be defined with a non-zero value in lsf.conf for LSF to collect network information to run IBM PE Runtime Edition jobs.

  2. Run hostsetup or manually set a symbolic link from /usr/lib64/libpermapi.so to $LSF_LIBDIR/permapi.so.
