619. Making libreoffice look a bit nicer

...and by the title I actually refer to making it look like MS office...we can discuss the merits or lack thereof of that, but not here and now.

NOTE: you can install a few alternative icons themes directly from the debian repos by installing the libreoffice-style-* packages.

Anyway, we're commiting sacriledge by making our libreoffice look like MS office. You can obviously use the instructions here to pick a less controversial look.

Icons:
First go to http://charliecnr.deviantart.com/art/Office-2013-theme-for-LibreOffice-512127527 or use wget:

wget http://orig11.deviantart.net/e10d/f/2015/059/7/3/office_2013_theme_for_libreoffice_by_charliecnr-d8gwo4n.zip
mv office_2013_theme_for_libreoffice_by_charliecnr-d8gwo4n.zip images_office2013.zip
sudo mv images_office2013.zip /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config/

Then in libreoffice go to Tools/Options/Libreoffice:view and pick your theme:
 Menu bar:
This is a weird one. Go to Tools/Options/Libreoffice:personalisation and under Firefox themes select own theme, and Visit Firefox Themes.



Then paste the URL of the theme you want. I used this URL: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/office2010-edit/

And this is how libreoffice writer looks now:

618. Modifying ECCE to work with slurm

UPDATE: ecce stops monitoring the job after 10-20 seconds. The job continues fine though. Working on fixing the monitoring issue. This message will be removed once that's fixed. It was due to $q needing to be lowercase (i.e. 'slurm', not 'Slurm') in eccejobmonitor.



Sun Gridengine has been removed from debian jessie (it's in wheezy and sid). This has given me a good excuse to explore setting up SLURM on my debian cluster. So I did: http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2015/07/617-slurm-on-debian-jessie-and.html

My setup is very simple, with each node having it's own working directory that they export via NFS to the main node. Also, I never run jobs across several nodes. Because of that, each node has it's own queue. Not how beowulf clusters were supposed to work, but it's the best solution for me (e.g. ROCKS does the opposite -- exports the user dir from the main node, but that makes reading and writing slow where it counts i.e. on the work nodes).

I've currently got this slurm.conf:
ControlMachine=beryllium ControlAddr=192.168.1.1 MpiDefault=none ProctrackType=proctrack/pgid ReturnToService=2 SlurmctldPidFile=/var/run/slurm-llnl/slurmctld.pid SlurmdPidFile=/var/run/slurm-llnl/slurmd.pid SlurmdSpoolDir=/var/lib/slurm/slurmd SlurmUser=slurm StateSaveLocation=/var/lib/slurm/slurmctld SwitchType=switch/none TaskPlugin=task/none FastSchedule=1 SchedulerType=sched/backfill SelectType=select/linear AccountingStorageType=accounting_storage/filetxt AccountingStorageLoc=/var/log/slurm/accounting ClusterName=rupert JobAcctGatherType=jobacct_gather/none SlurmctldLogFile=/var/log/slurm/slurmctld.log SlurmdLogFile=/var/log/slurm/slurmd.log NodeName=beryllium NodeAddr=192.168.1.1 NodeName=neon NodeAddr=192.168.1.120 state=unknown NodeName=tantalum NodeAddr=192.168.1.150 state=unknown NodeName=magnesium NodeAddr=192.168.1.200 state=unknown NodeName=carbon NodeAddr=192.168.1.190 state=unknown NodeName=oxygen NodeAddr=192.168.1.180 state=unknown PartitionName=All Nodes=neon,beryllium,tantalum,oxygen,magnesium,carbon default=yes maxtime=infinite state=up PartitionName=mpi4 Nodes=tantalum maxtime=infinite state=up PartitionName=mpi12 Nodes=carbon maxtime=infinite state=up PartitionName=mpi8 Nodes=neon maxtime=infinite state=up PartitionName=mpix8 Nodes=oxygen maxtime=infinite state=up PartitionName=mpix12 Nodes=magnesium maxtime=infinite state=up PartitionName=mpi1 Nodes=beryllium maxtime=infinite state=up
and sinfo returns

The first step was to figure out what files to edit:

grep -rs "qsub"
apps/siteconfig/QueueManagers:SGE|submitCommand: qsub ##script##
grep -rs "SGE"
apps/scripts/eccejobmonitor: &MsgSendUp("SGE job id '$id' in state '$state'"); [..] apps/siteconfig/Queues:magnesium|queueMgrName: SGE

Here are the files I edited:

apps/siteconfig/QueueManagers:
12 QueueManagers: LoadLeveler \ 13 Maui \ 14 EASY \ 15 PBS \ 16 LSF \ 17 Moab \ 18 SGE \ 19 Shell\ 20 Slurm

apps/scripts/eccejobmonitor:

Next set up a new machine (or queue) using ecce -admin. Set up a queue -- you won't be able to select Slurm, so select e.g. PBS. Edit the apps/siteconfig/CONFIG.machinename file to e.g.
1 NWChem: /opt/nwchem/Nwchem/bin/LINUX64/nwchem 2 Gaussian-03: /opt/gaussian/g09d/g09/g09 3 perlPath: /usr/bin/ 4 qmgrPath: /usr/bin/ 5 xappsPath: /usr/bin/ 6 7 Slurm { 8 #!/bin/csh 9 #SBATCH -p mpi8 10 #SBATCH --time=$walltime 11 #SBATCH --output=slurm.out 12 #SBATCH --job-name=$submitFile 13 } 14 15 NWChemEnvironment { 16 PYTHONPATH /opt/nwchem/Nwchem/contrib/python 17 } 18 19 NWChemFilesToRemove{ core *.aoints.* *.gridpts.* } 20 21 NWChemCommand { 22 setenv PATH "/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin" 23 setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH "/usr/lib/openmpi/lib:/opt/openblas/lib:/opt/acml/acml5.3.1/gfortran64_fma4_int64/lib:/opt/acml/acml5.3.1/gfortran64_int64/lib:/opt/intel/mkl/lib/intel64" 24 hostname 25 mpirun -n $totalprocs /opt/nwchem/Nwchem/bin/LINUX64/nwchem $infile > $outfile 26 } 27 28 Gaussian-03FilesToRemove{ core *.rwf } 29 30 Gaussian-03Command{ 31 set path = ( /opt/nbo6/bin $path ) 32 setenv GAUSS_SCRDIR /home/andy/scratch 33 setenv GAUSS_EXEDIR /opt/gaussian/g09d/g09/bsd:/opt/gaussian/g09d/g09/local:/opt/gaussian/g09d/g09/extras:/opt/gaussian/g09d/g09 34 /opt/gaussian/g09d/g09/g09< $infile > $outfile 35 echo 0 36 } 37 38 Wrapup{ 39 dmesg|tail 40 find ~/scratch/* -name "*" -user me|xargs -I {} rm {} -rf 41 }
Next, edit apps/siteconfig/Queues -- in my case the machine I created is called neon-slurm:
neon-slurm|queueMgrName: Slurm neon-slurm|queueMgrVersion: 2.0~ neon-slurm|prefFile: neon-slurm.Q
And that's all. You should now be able to submit jobs via slurm. There's obviously a lot more than can be done and configured with SLURM, but this was enough to get me up and running, so that I'm now 'future-proofed' in case SGE never comes back into debian stable.

And here's what it looks like when my ecce-submitted jobs are running:

squeue
JOBID PARTITION NAME USER ST TIME NODES NODELIST(REASON) 30 mpi8 In_monom me PD 0:00 1 (Resources) 29 mpi8 b_monome me R 16:12 1 neon 31 mpix12 tl_dimer me R 34:28 1 magnesium

617. SLURM on debian jessie (and compiling Jürgen Rinas' sinfo)

Two issues:
* Sun GridEngine (now Oracle GridEngine) is missing from Debian Jessie. I need a queue manager for my cluster. For now the wheezy package runs fine in debian jessie, but I'd be happier with a supported solution. SLURM is a good alternative here, and I've used it at the TACC.

* SLURM conflicts with Jürgen Rinas' sinfo package, which I use to keep an eye on my cluster. Until this has been resolved, I'll compile and use my own version of sinfo -- basically, I'll rename sinfo and sinfod to sinfo_jr and sinfod_jr. I can't live without sinfo.



Compiling sinfo
mkdir ~/tmp/sinfo -p
cd ~/tmp/sinfo
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get autoremove sinfo 
apt-get source sinfo
cd sinfo-0.0.47/
vim debian/rules 

Change
16 dh_auto_configure -- --enable-SIMPLE_USER_CACHE --enable-CPUNO_ADJUST 21 rm $(CURDIR)/debian/sinfo/usr/bin/sshallsinfo 22 rm $(CURDIR)/debian/sinfo/usr/share/man/man1/sshallsinfo.1 25 rm $(CURDIR)/debian/sinfo/usr/lib/*/sinfo/*.la 37 chmod 755 $(CURDIR)/debian/sinfo/usr/share/sinfo/sinfo.pl.cgi

That's jr for Jürgen Rinas.

Then edit debian/control and change
12 Package: sinfo 15 Conflicts: slurm-client, slurm-llnl (<< 14.03.8-1)
to
12 Package: sinfo_jr 15 Conflicts:
Build:
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
cd ../
sudo dpkg -i sinfo_0.0.47-3_amd64.deb

I launch sinfodjr at boot by putting the following in /etc/rc.local:
su verahill -c '/usr/sbin/sinfodjr --bcast 192.168.1.255' &

SLURM:
I had a look at this post: https://paolobertasi.wordpress.com/2011/05/24/how-to-install-slurm-on-debian/

It looked to easy to be true.

Here's what I ended up doing:

On the MASTER node:
sudo apt-get install slurm-wlm slurmctld slurmd

Copy the above block to /etc/slurm-llnl/slurm.conf

Note the lack of spaces between beryllium and neon in the Nodes= directive.

On neon (and later on each node): 
Install slurmd and slurm-client as shown below, then copy the /etc/munge/munge.key from the master node to the execute node. Do the same with /etc/slurm-llnl/slurm.conf. Then enable and restart the services.

sudo apt-get install slurmd slurm-client
sudo ln -s /var/lib/slurm-llnl /var/lib/slurm
sudo systemctl enable slurmd.service
sudo systemctl restart slurmd.service
sudo systemctl enable munge.service
sudo systemctl restart munge.service
sudo systemctl status slurmd.service

On the main host (beryllium) I checked that everything was well:
