Parse qstat xml to python dict

Project description

The sungrid job submission framework known as `qsub` is a powerful tool to distribute your workload over many machines in parallel. To check the status of the jobs in the queue there is `qstat` which can print a human readable status table on the command line. Such status can be useful to keep track of your submitted compute jobs to e.g. prevent duplicate submission.

This python qstat wrapper parses the jobs listed in `qstat -xml` into a list of dictionaries.

Install with

$ pip install qstat


Get python dictionaries descibing your `qsub` jobs.

from qstat import qstat

queue_info, job_info = qstat()

{'@state': 'running',
 'JAT_prio': '0.55008',
 'JAT_start_time': '2017-09-04T16:22:50',
 'JB_job_number': '6384796',
 'JB_name': 'phs_obs_20120102_001',
 'JB_owner': 'relleums',
 'queue_name': '',
 'slots': '1',
 'state': 'r'}

Add both `queue_info` and `job_info` to have one list of both running and waiting jobs:

from qstat import qstat

queue_info, job_info = qstat()

all_jobs = queue_info + job_info

for job in all_jobs:
    print(job['JB_name'], 'is', job['@state'])
my_job_001 is running
my_job_002 is running
my_job_003 is running

or combine with e.g. with pandas DataFrame

from qstat import qstat
q, j = qstat()

import pandas as pd
df = pd.DataFrame(q + j)

      @state JAT_prio JAT_start_time JB_job_number               JB_name  \
