|Running R on the HPC|
The R Project for Statistical Computing
To run the R program, you have to source the following file:
source /usr/local/profile.d/R.cshif your shell is bash
You should not run long analyzes on the login nodes. Please use the moab job scheduler for these kind of jobs. An example job submission script could look like,
#!/bin/sh #MOAB -l nodes=1 #MOAB -N RJOB #MOAB -l walltime=1:00:00 #MOAB -j oe source /usr/local/profile.d/R.sh R --vanilla < yourRscript
Since you are running in a non-interactive mode, you have to cat your script since R doesn't load files from the command line and you are required to supply at least one of these options --save, --no-save or --vanilla. In the example above, we cat the file yourRscript by using redirection (<). See man R about the meaning of the save options.
