The batch scheduler is configured with a number of scheduling policies to keep in mind. The policies attempt to balance the competing objectives of reasonable queue wait times and efficient system utilization. The details of these policies differ slightly on each system. Exceptions to the limits can be made under certain circumstances; contact email@example.com for details.
CUDA™ (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel computing platform and programming model developed by Nvidia that enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU).
Job scripts are submitted to the batch system using the
qsub command. Be sure to submit your job on the system you want your job to run on.
The batch systems on different clusters are entirely separate; one knows anything about the jobs queued or running on other systems. You may edit your batch scripts anywhere, but you must submit and monitor your jobs from a login node on the system where you want to run.
