Installation of a Batchsystem Server

From Gridkaschool

For installing the Torque batch system server one repository has to be placed in /etc/yum.repos.d/.


You can find the repository file at Get it with

 wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/

Now you can install the package:

yum install glite-TORQUE_server

If asked to accept importing the gpg keys of the repository answer with "y":

Importing GPG key 0x836AAC2B "Gd Integration <>" from
Is this ok [y/N]: y

The output of yum should look like the one below Running rpm_check_debug Running Transaction Test Finished Transaction Test Transaction Test Succeeded Running Transaction

Note: As you can see not only Torque was installed, but also Maui. Maui is often used as replacement for the simple FIFO (first in, first out) scheduler that comes along with Torque.

That's all for the installation.
