Introduction to Queues

A queue is responsible for executing the jobs that are assigned to it. It also allocates to the job the resources that are defined for the resource groups with which the job is associated.

For a job to run, it must be assigned to a queue. If you do not assign the job to a queue, it will be assigned to the default queue that is created when you configure Resource Management for the first time.

Multiple queues

Many organizations have multiple teams running different experiments that require different server types. MissingLink's Resource Queue lets the teams run their experiments in parallel, without interfering with each other.

You can create discrete queues that use distinct server groups that address different technical and business requirements. Then, when submitting a new job, you can target those specific server types.

Once you have created a queue, it is enabled by default. Commands are available for disabling queues, enabling them, and renaming them.

Use ml run xp to run a resource group in a queue.

Note

You cannot assign jobs to queues that have been disabled.
