HTCondor is a “scheduler” system that dispatches compute jobs to 1 or more "compute nodes."
Using HTCondor is the only approved method for performing high throughput computing on the BCC Linux cluster.
Jobs have to be ready to be processed by HTCondor as jobs cannot be interactive on the cluster.
Submit a "job file" that contains information on how to run the software
Information about software and file transfer
Invert the process:
Create execute file (e.g. with
$ nano hello.sh
#!/bin/sh echo "Hello World"
Make file executable:
$ chmod u+x hello.sh
$ nano hello.sub
executable = hello.sh should_transfer_files = Yes output = hello.out error = hello.err log = hello.log queue
