ISE SmartXplorer: How to use -R options correctly with bsub in LSF


How can I select the -R options with bsub when using SmartXplorer on LSF?
I need to do this so that I can select my bigger machines with specific configurations to run these jobs.


You can use the -R switch under bsub options in the host file to further narrow down the selection of host machines.
You will need to check the following:

Ensure that the options work with the bsub command.
For example:

bsub R 'mem>1000&&swp>10'

Note: there should ne no spaces in between the above quotes.

The above example might work for bsub but might not for SmartXplorer.

Here is the LSF host list file that works.

:LSF {"queue_name": "quick", "max_concurrent_runs":7, "bsub_options": "-R 'mem>1000&&swp>10' "}
