Usage

In general three types of jobs are supported

  • Interactive This jobs are intended for small tests and development tasks like debugging. Resources, like number of nodes, memory, cpu-time are very limited for this type of jobs.
  • Batch Jobs This type of jobs is used for production runs
  • Heterogenous Jobs This special type of batch jobs utilizes multiple type of execution nodes within a job. For example graphic nodes and cluster nodes.

Data Handling

The user HOME space is limited in terms of size and performance. Computational jobs run inside a Work_space. This Work_space is for active projects only and has a limited life time. If a project gets inactive for some reason, the user has to save its data to an archive system e.g. High Performance Storage System (HPSS).
