REVIEW-60: XCI-186 Usage and error reporting enhancements for xdusage - Test Readiness Review


The xdusage command-line tool reports allocation information for a given user such as total SU awarded as well as SU's used and remaining for each of their allocations.  XCI-186 delivers xdusage 2.1, which improves error reporting during installation and configuration.

Review Summary

  • (Derek) User doc referenced old CTSSv4 module
    • Peter submitted help ticket and got the doc updated to use 'xdusage' instead
  • (Christopher) Test instructions say the the api_id field in the xdusage.conf file should be set to some unique client machine name or user name that is NOT the resource_name but install instructions say different.
    • Peter says for testing that is recommended and should not cause a failure
