A meter is very similar to an event.
Instead of being a boolean value (on/off), it can take a range of integer values.
Other tasks are then triggered when the meter reaches a certain value.
Like events, meter‘s have names and a task can have several of them.
   

Ecf Script

We will create new tasks (t5, t6 and t7) that will be triggered
when the meter in task t1 reaches certain values.
To notify ecflow_server, the task ( t1 in the example below) must call
the ecflow_client –meter. This is also one of the child command‘s.

 

$HOME/course/f1/t1.ecf
%include <head.h>
echo "I will now sleep for %SLEEP% seconds"
sleep %SLEEP%
n=1
while [[ $n -le 100 ]]               # Loop 100 times
do
   sleep 1                           # Wait a short time
   ecflow_client --meter=progress $n # Notify ecFlow
   (( n = $n + 1 ))
done
%include <tail.h>

     task t1
         meter progress 1 100 90

         trigger t1 eq complete
         event a
         event b
     task t3
         trigger t2:a
     task t4
         trigger t2 eq complete
         complete t2:b
     task t5
         trigger t1:progress ge 30
     task t6
         trigger t1:progress ge 60
     task t7
         trigger t1:progress ge 90
 endfamily
endsuite

print(defs.check_job_creation())

print("Saving definition to file 'test.def'")

What to do

  1. Edit the definition file or python to add the modifications.
  2. Edit t1.ecf to call ecflow_client –meter
  3. Copy t4.ecf to t5.ecf, t6.ecf and t7.ecf
  4. Replace the suite
    python: python test.py ; python client.py
    text:      ecflow_client --suspend=/test   ; ecflow_client --replace=/test  test.def
  5. Observe the tasks in ecflow_ui
  6. See the triggers by selecting progress and clicking on the Triggers icon.
  7. Move the mouse pointer over progress then with the right mouse button, choose Edit...
  8. Modify the value of the meter.
