Welcome to pypbs’s documentation!

pypbs aims to be a super simple api that sits on top of the common pbs commands. Some pbs commands output xml such as qstat and pbsnodes. This output is in turn parsed and used to build the api.

You may also want to check out the pbs_python project pbs_python requires that you compile the project where pypbs is just a wrapper on top of the pbs commands.
