To start an interactive use the
qsub command with the
razor-l1:pwolinsk:$ qsub -I qsub: waiting for job 1451274.sched to start qsub: job 1451274.sched ready PBS_NODEFILE=/var/spool/torque/aux/1451274.sched PBS_NUM_NODES=walltime=03 PBS_PPN=walltime=03:00:00 PBS_PPA=12 Currently Loaded Modulefiles: 1) os/el6 compute1141:pwolinsk:$
This command starts an interactive job with default parameters:
tiny12corequeue for 3 hours
To explicitly specify these options please use the following parameters to the qsub command.
| ||(uppercase “i”) request an interactive job|
| || ||(lowercase “L”) request a runtime of 2 hours 1 minute and 0 seconds|
| || ||(lowercase “L”) request 2 computing cores on 1 node|
| || ||request a node in the 'student48core' queue|

For information about the available queues on Razor and Trestles please see queues.
Interactive jobs end when you disconnect. If your job is done computing and is at a system prompt, please exit the compute node so it can be reused. If you have unreliable network access that doesn't last as long as an interactive job, see GNU Screen at Yale CRC.
