Page 10 of 10
There are a number of job queues available on the cluster and depending on your user type (owner-base or general access) you can submit your job to one of those. For an actual list of queues, see this list.
Jobs submitted to the backfill queue have a wallclock time restriction: their runtime can not exceed 4 hours. When that time limit is exceeded, your job will be cancelled. If you try to reserve a longer walltime than 4 hours, the scheduler will refuse your job.
Run a job in the backfill queue:
$ msub -q backfill trap-mpichv2.sh
Run a job with high-priority:
$ msub -l qos=scs_high trap-mpichv2.sh
Change the quality of service from a job that is waiting
$ checkjob 23831

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
