This example runs PAUP on the input file
input.nex that resides in the current working directory. A file (here we'll name it
pbsjob) is created with the contents:
To submit the job for execution on a HPRC compute node simply enter the command:
If you know this job will require more than 4GB but less than 8GB of RAM, you could use the command:
If you know this job will require more than 8GB but less than 16GB of RAM, you could use the command:
The reason for the special cases (latter two) is to guarantee memory resources for your job. If memory on a node is overallocated, swap will be used. Job(s) that are actively using swap (disk) to simulate memory could take more than 1000 times longer to finish than a job running on dedicated memory. In most cases, this will mean your job will never finish.
