Project Options Dialog Box: MWO Server Scheduler Tab

The Project Options dialog box MWO Server Scheduler tab allows you to specify job processing options for this project. To access this tab, choose Options > Project Options or double-click Project Options in the Project Browser. See Remote and Parallel Simulation and Job Scheduler for more information. This dialog box contains the following options (some options display only when a remote node is set up in the Job Scheduler Admin dialog box):

Field Description
Job Process Priority The Operating System priority to assign to the job process once it is running. A "Default" setting is the "Normal" setting.
Remote Execution If a remote server is available, this selects whether the job is run on the local computer or the remote server.
Preferred Remote Queue For remote job execution, this is the first remote job server listed in the Job Scheduler Admin tool.
Remote Performance Preference Controls job assignments to remote computers (in combination with the LocalComputePreference option set via the Job Scheduler Admin dialog box on the remote computer). The default is Normal, so jobs are never rejected by remote computers. If set to High, a job is only assigned to a remote computer with LocalComputePreference set as High, and rejected by computers with this option set to Normal. If no remote computers satisfy the Remote Performance Preference of the job, the scheduler node rejects the job.
Remote Memory Preference Controls job assignments to remote computers (in combination with the LocalMemoryCapacity option set via the Job Scheduler Admin dialog box on the remote computer). The default is Normal, so jobs are never rejected by remote computers. If set to High, a job is only assigned to a remote computer with LocalMemoryCapacity set as High, and rejected by computers with this option set to Normal. If no remote computers satisfy the Remote Memory Preference of the job, the scheduler node rejects the job.
Max Nodes for Multiple Jobs The maximum number of compute nodes in the remote server used in the simulation.
Max Parallel Jobs Per Node The maximum number of jobs that can run in parallel on the same compute node.
Percent Improvement for Async Update Controls local updates during distributed optimization. Local updates are used to refresh any measurements that are involved in the optimization. Since the local updates involve a simulation within the AWR client process, you may want to limit how often these update simulations are executed. The value of this option is the percentage improvement in the optimization cost function that triggers simulation updates within the AWR client process. To minimize the updates, you can set this value to a larger number (up to 1000%).
Enable Diagnostic Logging Generate log files for diagnosing MWO server jobs in the specified Logs directory.
Save project after MWO server job Automatically saves the project if any of the remote MWO server jobs complete successfully.
