THIS PAGE CONTAINS OLD INFORMATION - HPC staff will work on updating it soon.

This page is intended as a quick introduction for new users submitting their first job to the HPRC Cluster. 

In the typical work flow the user:

  1. Logs into
  2. Prepares a submission script for their jobs
  3. Submits their jobs to the Job Scheduler
  4. Monitors their jobs
  5. Collects the output of their jobs.

A few things that new users should be aware of:

  • Typically, jobs are not run in an interactive manner, except when:
    • users are running small one off jobs
    • evaluating the resources required for bigger jobs
    • using graphical applications like MATLAB
    • Examples of interactive jobs:
      Content by Label
      cqllabel = "interactive-cluster-job"
  • HPRC Cluster software is not run in a window on their desktop, neither is it launched by clicking on it in a network drive.
  • Users need to log into the cluster and inform the job scheduler about their job and it will run it when it can.
