Create a limit using bconf

About this task

You can create new limits using live reconfiguration.


Run bconf create limit=limit_name

For example, to create the limit X1 with a job limit of 23 per host:

bconf create limit=X1 "JOBS=23;PER_HOST=host12"
bconf: Request for limit <X1> accepted

Once accepted by bconf, the new limit appears in blimits output:

blimits -cn X1
Begin Limit
 NAME          = X1
 PER_HOST      = host12
 JOBS          = 23
End Limit


Limits that are created using bconf create are written to the changed lsb.resources configuration file in horizontal format.
