On September 22nd OSC will be switching to Slurm for job scheduling and resource management on the Pitzer Cluster, along with the deployment of the new Pitzer hardware. We are in the process of updating the example job scripts for each software. If a Slurm example is not yet available, please consult our general Slurm information page or contact OSC help.
