9 System Status Array

This is an X-Windows analysis tool, which allows a quick survey of the utilization of processor nodes. You can get into the System Status Array by typing
poestat& Within this System Status Array, each node is represented by a colored square:

Pink squares
- nodes with low or no utilization.
Yellow squares
- nodes with higher utilization.
Green frames within the squares
- nodes with running parallel MPL processes.
Grey squares
- nodes not available for monitoring.

To the right appears a list of node names; nodes are listed in order from left to right and from top to bottom.

Remember, if you want the status of all active MPL jobs running on the nodes, the command is jm_status -j. This could be lengthy if many jobs are running on the SP2 at the time.
