Monitoring and Managing Your Job

Several commands allow you to check job status, monitor execution, collect performance statistics or even delete your job, if necessary.

Status of queued jobs

There are many possible reasons for a long queue wait — read on to learn how to check job status and for more about how job scheduling works.


Use the squeue command to check the status of your jobs, including whether your job is queued or running and information about requested resources. If the job is running, you can view elapsed time and resources used.


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 Submission

Job scripts are submitted to the batch system using the sbatch command.  Be sure to submit your job on the system you want your job to run on, or use the --cluster=<system> option to specify one.

Standard batch job

Most jobs on our system are submitted as scripts with no command-line options. If your script is in a file named myscript:

sbatch myscript

In response to this command you’ll see a line with your job ID:
