Job Submission

Submit a Job

Instead of allocating two nodes interactivly, we shall submit a job and let the scheduler run the task in batch mode.

For this we create a batch script:

cat > submission_script.sbatch << EOF
#SBATCH --job-name=hello-world-job
#SBATCH --ntasks=4
#SBATCH --output=%x_%j.out

mpirun ${HOME}/hello
# Since the hello-world example will be very shortlived, let's wait a bit
sleep 60

Let us submit a job.

sbatch submission_script.sbatch

This will release the node first (exit) and submit a job.

Once finished you can check out the log file.

cat hello-world-job_*.out
