Scheduler End-User Commands
After creating your job script, use the msub command to submit it to the scheduler
msub -l nodes=N:ppn=np jobscript
The state of a job after submission can be:active, idle, blocked or deferred. The following table lists scheduler commands that are available to end-users.
- Active jobs are started
- Idle jobs are eligble to run, but resources are not available
- Blocked jobs are not being considered to run likely due to policy violations. These jobs will eventually be moved to the idle state.
- Deferred jobs have a batch hold due to a request for a type or amount of resources that do not exist on the system. These jobs will not run.
