Running Jobs on Eos

See this article in context within the following user guides: Eos

In High Performance Computing (HPC), computational work is performed by jobs. Individual jobs produce data that lend relevant insight into grand challenges in science and engineering. As such, the timely, efficient execution of jobs is the primary concern in the operation of any HPC system.

A job on Eos typically comprises a few different components:

  • A batch submission script.
  • A binary executable.
  • A set of input files for the executable.
  • A set of output files created by the executable.

And the process for running a job, in general, is to:

  1. Prepare executables and input files.
  2. Write a batch script.
  3. Submit the batch script to the batch scheduler.
  4. Optionally monitor the job before and during execution.

The following sections describe in detail how to create, submit, and manage jobs for execution on Eos.
