PRRTE provides notifications on a variety of process and job states. Each notification includes not only the PMIx event code that generated it, but also information on the cause of the event to the extent to which this is known.
Supported job events include:
PMIX_READY_FOR_DEBUG: indicates that all processes in the reported nspace have reached the specified debug stopping point.
PMIX_LAUNCH_COMPLETE: indicates that the reported nspace has been launched — i.e., the involved PRRTE daemons all report that their respective child processes have completed fork/exec.
PMIX_ERR_JOB_CANCELED: indicates that the job was cancelled by user command, usually issued via an appropriate PMIx-enabled tool.
PMIX_ERR_JOB_FAILED_TO_LAUNCH: indicates that the specified job failed to launch. This can be due to a variety of factors that include inability to find the executable on at least one involved node.
Supported process events include:
PMIX_ERR_PROC_TERM_WO_SYNC: indicates that at least one process in the job called
PMIx_Init, thus indicating some notion of a global existence, and at least one process in the job subsequently exited without calling
PMIx_Finalize. This usually indicates a failure somewhere in the application itself that precluded an orderly shutdown of the process. Notification will include the process ID that exited in this manner.
PMIX_EVENT_PROC_TERMINATED: indicates that the reported process terminated normally. Notification will include the process ID that exited and its exit status.
PMIX_ERR_PROC_KILLED_BY_CMD: indicates that the reported process was killed by PRRTE command. This typically occurs in response to a Ctrl-C (or equivalent) being applied to the PRRTE launcher, thereby instructing PRRTE to forcibly terminate its processes. The event currently will only be issued in the case where forcible termination is commanded via a tool that can pass the process IDs that are specifically to be terminated — otherwise, in the case of the Ctrl-C event previously described, all processes in the job will be terminated, leaving none to be notified. Notification will include the process ID that was terminated.
PMIX_ERR_PROC_SENSOR_BOUND_EXCEEDED: indicates that the specified process exceeded a previously-set sensor boundary — e.g., it may have grown beyond a defined memory limit. Such events may or may not automatically trigger termination by command, depending upon the behavior of the sensor. Notification will include the process ID that exceeded the sensor boundary plus whatever information the sensor provides regarding measurements and bounds.
PMIX_ERR_PROC_ABORTED_BY_SIG: indicates that the specified process was killed by a signal — e.g., a segmentation fault/violation or an externally applied signal. Notifications will include the process ID that was killed and the corresponding reported signal.
PMIX_ERR_PROC_REQUESTED_ABORT:indicates that the specified process has aborted by calling the
PMIx_Abortfunction. Notification will include the process ID that called abort and its exit status.
PMIX_ERR_EXIT_NONZERO_TERM: indicates that the specified process terminated with a non-zero exit status. This notification is only generated in the case where the runtime option
ERROR-NONZERO-STATUSis set to true, thereby indicating that a process exiting with non-zero status is to be considered an error. As PRRTE can be overwhelmed by a large job where every process exits with a non-zero status, only the first process in a given job that exits with a non-zero status will generate a notification unless the
RECOVERABLEruntime option is also provided as otherwise the job will be immediately terminated. Notifications will include the process ID that exited and the status it returned.
PMIX_ERR_PROC_RESTART: indicates that the specified process has been restarted. Additional information may include the hostname where the process is now executing.
