Abstract: The PBS Pro software performs job scheduling and workload management for HPC clusters and clouds. The software was born at NASA in the 1990s, and, by the 2010s, became one of the top tools of its kind. In mid-2016, PBS Pro became a fully open source solution, with a growing community of developers and users around the globe. Join the community (www.pbspro.org) -- users, developers, contributors, and open source enthusiasts -- to learn what's new and drive the future of the PBS Pro.
Long Description: This BOF aims to bring together the PBS Pro community — users, administrators, and contributors — new and seasoned — from the US and from around the globe — to meet each other face-to-face, to learn from each other, to discuss opportunities and roadmap, to raise issues, and to generally discuss how to better work together to further the goals of the PBS Pro community.
The software was originally born at NASA in the 1990s, and, by the 2010s, became one of the top tools of its kind in the HPC world. In mid-2016, PBS Pro became a fully open source solution, with a growing community of developers and users around the globe.
Relevant topics include what’s on the roadmap from various contributors, calls for participation in ongoing activities, discussions of issues relating to the project itself (processes, infrastructure, governance), and, of course, best practices and “cool hacks”.
Prior versions of the PBS BOF have taken place about every other year at Supercomputing, and have been well attended (25-75 people).
The notes from this BOF will be posted on the public pbspro.org community forum, and will be made available to the Supercomputing committee for publication.
