#puppet-torque Build Status

This is a Puppet module for managing Torque resource manager and Maui scheduler.



class { 'torque::server': }

By default server_name is the $::hostname of the server node (we get it from Facter). You can choose to use other fact of some value, e.g.:

class { 'torque':
  server_name => $::fqdn
  • One can run both the server and client on the same box (Within server class is not included client)

client (a computing node):

class { 'torque::client': }

Default Torque home directory is /var/spool/torque, you can change it:

class { 'torque':
  torque_home => '/etc/torque'


Queues can be configured via qmgr_queues hash which you pass to torque::server.

    - 'enabled = True'
    - 'started = True'
    - 'queue_type = Execution'


Nodes can be specified via Hiera config (also you can pass a config hash to torque::server class):

    cpus: 10
    cpus: 5
    gpus: 10


In order to install Maui you have to have a binary package for your distribution.

Hiera support

Hiera is supported out-of-the-box, you can set any class parameter from YAML config files.

torque::server_name: ''
