UTIL (Utility)


This is a collection of command line interfaces that allow users to quickly obtain the information about the state and jobs across all systems. The util package includes the following user commands: gsysinfo (alias grinfo), gjobs, glssys, gwho, gpkg. All the g-commands are global. They access the information from a centralized database. One can get information on system X while on system Y. For performance, information accessed is cached on the local host for possible subsequent queries.
