Ability to override worker description per batch
When starting a
gspc::scoped_runtime_system one traditionally
topology_description for the workers, which is reused
add_worker() call. An overload has been added that allows
giving a specific description per call, in order to allow asymmetric
RIF strategy ‘local’
Developers testing on machines that support neither
may now at least validate their application on the
local node by
--rif-strategy=local. The strategy expects the only node
given to be
Modify worker environment variables
It is now possible to specify the environment variables to be set when starting a runtime system’s workers, rather than having a predefined, empty, environment.
By default the environment still is completely empty, and no variables other than the ones referenced in the options will be set in the remote process. The following options have been added:
--worker-env-set-variableto explicitly set the value of a variable on the command line
--worker-env-copy-file pathto set all variables in the given files, where every line is a key-value pair in
--worker-env-copy-currentto copy variables set in the process starting up by allow-list or blanket copy respectively
Ability to disable function-does-not-unload check
It is now possible to disable the check for a module call function not
leaking any dynamic libraries (and thus tainting the worker
process). Workflow developers may tag their
mark the taint as known and okay.
Orchestrator was inlined into Agent
orchestrator process has been removed and the functionality was
agent. This has also removed the
command line option.
Due to removing this level, log messages may slightly differ. Besides
that post-job cleanup scripts should be adopted to no longer try to
$install/libexec/gspcis no longer added to
LD_LIBRARY_PATHof worker automatically. Users may use
--worker-env-set-variableto reconstruct this behavior, but proper
rpaths are suggested instead.
stencil_cachelibrary was removed as it was too specific for generic use.
- When raising a
missing_bindingexception, the full path into a struct is given, instead of just the root.
- It is now possible to start
0workers per node in a topology description, to free clients from having to filter the description in degenerated cases.
- Error messages have been improved when using the RIF
sshstrategy but neither having
HOMEexported or having an
id_rsafile, nor specifying the respective option on the command line.
- All RIF strategies now support
--help, if they support command line arguments.
- Improved the performance of parallel applications that are generating large numbers of independent tasks, but have way fewer workers than tasks.
pnetcno longer throws an exception when synthesizing virtual places with tokens on them.
- The virtual memory client no longer fails to transfer when a large amount of ranges is given.
- The expression language parser now correctly handles
integral 'f'for floats.
- Properly clean up processes when using rif strategy
- Support for GCC 9 and 10 has been added.
- (Source-build only) Added support for Qt5 versions 5.10 and up, tested with 5.9.7 and 5.14.2.
