To facilitate more efficient scheduling, it is a good idea to specify the maximum amount of time a power on or power off action takes to complete.
PARCFG[torque] NODEPOWERONDURATION=2:00 PARCFG[torque] NODEPOWEROFFDURATION=2:00
With the NODEIDLEPOWERTHRESHOLD parameter, Moab can turn nodes off after they've been idle for a specific amount of seconds. The default value is 60 seconds.
You can enable or disable green power management for all nodes while Moab runs by using the changeparam command. For example:
To enable green power management: changeparam NODECFG[DEFAULT] POWERPOLICY=OnDemand
To disable green power management: changeparam NODECFG[DEFAULT] POWERPOLICY=STATIC
The default POWERPOLICY setting is STATIC.
