|Using the MOAB Workload Manager - MOAB Serial Job|
Page 3 of 10
MOAB does not support the notion of a job array such as other batch engines support. For example, only one serial job can be submitted per submit file. To run a serial job under the MOAB system, compile your code as needed and write a file that can be used to execute it. If your program is in the sub-directory your submission script is in, that directory is referenced as the environmental variable $PBS_O_WORKDIR. The executable in this example is called mytest. The MOAB-script would look like:
It is not required that this script be an executable shell script, because MOAB ignores the shell command directive. However, having an executable script is useful for debugging purposes if MOAB jobs fail to start. To start your job run:
$ msub moab.ex3
The command msub returns the jobID from the submitted job. You can check the status of your job using the checkjob command.
$ checkjob 1159
High Performance Computing @ FSU
Computational resources are a critical part of scientific research and engineering programs and play an increasingly important role in preparing students for careers in both commercial and academics fields. Recent advances in data acquisition, algorithm development, and computer hardware have made High Performance Computing (HPC) fundamentally necessary to remain competitive. FSU has long recognized the importance of local HPC resources for research and education. In 2002 FSU gained the distinct honor of having the largest university-owned computer facility worldwide and 34th largest among all facilities. Since its inception this facility has enabled research programs spanning such disciplines as biology, engineering, physics, meteorology, mathematics, oceanography, and more (see our research page for details).
The FSU HPC mission is to:
- Support multidisciplinary research
- Provide a general access computing platform
- Encourage cost sharing by departments with dedicated computing needs
- Provide a broad base of support and training opportunities
