You do have a point regarding users being able to circumvent resource controls.
And while I appreciate the finer control, it just feels a little cumbersome having to dig up scripts to do something which was just a single line command in Torque.
I guess I come from a background that just prefers some administrative controls, plain, and straightforward as can be. For example, qmgr -c ‘p s’ in my opinion should be the one-stop shop for most settings.
I know PBS Pro does have flags to hide certain settings from users. Maybe that should be used as much as possible, simplifying the admin’s life while restricting the user’s knowledge…
