Batch Systems

The planned batch systems at LinkSCEEM-2 resources include:
  • PBS (Portable Batch System or equivalent, eg. torque)
  • SGE (Sun Grid Engine family or equivalent)
  • SLURM (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management or compatible)

Users are advised to check each individual HPC system to identify the available batch system and refer to the original manufacturer's documentation accordingly.

As an example of what kind of facilities users should be expecting of, here is an template matrix of commands:

qstat -a Display the status of batch jobs
qdel <pbs_jobid> Delete (cancel) a queued job
qstat -r Show all running jobs on system
qstat -f <pbs_jobid> Show detailed information of the specified job
qstat -q Show all queues on system
qstat -Q Show queues limits for all queues
qstat -B Show quick information of the server
pbsnodes -a Show node status
showstart <pbs_jobid> Show an estimated starting time for the specified job
checkjob <pbs_jobid> Show detailed job state information
showbf Show information on available time slots
