How to enable epilog when cgroups hook is enabled


Hey guys,

According them manual “If any execjob_epilogue hooks exist, they are run, and the epilogue is not run.” But we need to do the both - run epilog while cgroups are enabled.

What would you suggest in this case?

Any plans to change this behaviour.

Best regards,



Hello Taras, there are no plans to change this behavior that I am aware of. There is an example hook provided in $PBS_EXEC/unsupported/ that will run a traditional prologue/epilogue from within a PBS hook, though (and you can have multiple execjob_epilogue hooks, of course). I hope this helps.


Hi Scott,

Thank you for the answer, the hook might indeed work, will see.
Although I hope Altair will implement some solution that will not
require writing and supporting any code.

Best regards,
