Standalone User Interface

Allocator also provides a standalone graphical user interface that can be run from the shell command line.

Please note, this is a limited GUI which can show details of only one resource at a time. For full UI functionality, it is recommended to use the browser interface, described in an earlier section.

In a shell, use the command:
vovla_gui -r <RESOURCE_NAME>
This standalone GUI will display four time plots for the specificied resource for each site:
  • Running
  • Queued
  • Allocated
  • Uncertain


Figure 1.
Note: Each site uses a different color to distinguish it from other sites. However, the chosen color for any site is the same across all four plots. For any of the plots, you can hide the plots for one or more sites by clicking on the site nickname(s) in the left column.

On the right side of the screen, you can see the average value for each plot as well as the last value.

The plots shown here auto-refresh every 10 seconds by default. You can choose the "update" interval by clicking the update button in the top right and selecting the desired refresh rate from the drop-down menu.

You can also choose the time range to display in these plots by clicking the interval button and choosing the desired time range from the drop menu.
