Submitting Batch Scripts

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

Once written, a batch script is submitted to the batch scheduler via the qsub command.

$ cd /path/to/batch/script
$ qsub ./script.pbs

If successfully submitted, a PBS job ID will be returned. This ID is needed to monitor the job’s status with various job monitoring utilities. It is also necessary information when troubleshooting a failed job, or when asking the OLCF User Assistance Center for help.

Note: Always make a note of the returned job ID upon job submission, and include it in help requests to the OLCF User Assistance Center.

Options to the qsub command allow the specification of attributes which affect the behavior of the job. In general, options to qsub on the command line can also be placed in the batch scheduler options section of the batch script via #PBS.

For more information on submitting batch jobs, see the Batch Script Examples page.
