BIRC has purchased a computing node (with 36 Intel Skylake cores) in the Storrs HPC. This node is available to all users of the cluster, but BIRC affiliates can be granted scheduling priority (relative to non-BIRC users).
- Request a Storrs HPC account if you do not already have one.
- Have your PI email Roeland Hancock a list of NetIDs to be put on the priority user list. You will generally receive access within a few business days.
Include the following in your SLURM job description:
#SBATCH --partition=SkylakePriority #SBATCH --account=roh17004
GNU Parallel is a utility for easily distributing arguments across parallel jobs. A common use case is to process multiple subjects in parallel. For example, if you have have a list of identifiers in
subjects.txt and script
myscript.sh that takes a single identifier as an argument, you can process multiple subjects in parallel with the
cat subjects.txt | parallel myscript.sh
parallel takes care of the details of running
myscript.sh across processors or nodes. In this way, you can setup parallel jobs within a single SLURM job.
