Queue-level job starters

LSF administrators can define a job starter for an individual queue to create a specific environment for jobs to run in. A queue-level job starter specifies an executable that performs any necessary setup, and then runs the job when the setup is complete. The JOB_STARTER parameter in lsb.queues specifies the command or script that is the job starter for the queue.

This section describes how to set up and use a queue-level job starter.

Queue-level job starters have no effect on interactive jobs, unless the interactive job is submitted to a queue as an interactive batch job.

LSF users can also select an existing command or script to be a job starter for their interactive jobs using the LSF_JOB_STARTER environment variable.
