Host groups

You can define a host group within LSF or use an external executable to retrieve host group members.

Use bhosts to view a list of existing hosts. Use bmgroup to view host group membership.

Where to use host groups

LSF host groups can be used in defining the following parameters in LSF configuration files:

  • HOSTS in lsb.queues for authorized hosts for the queue

  • HOSTS in lsb.hosts in the HostPartition section to list host groups that are members of the host partition
