5. Tango user guides - SLURM submission scripts
You will find the SLURM submission script template in your home directory under a folder called .templates.
ls -lar .templates/ -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 563 Apr 28 15:05 tango.sub
Copy tango.sub to your work folder and modify it as required:
cd ~/WorkDir/WorkSubDir/ cp ~/.templates/tango.sub myExperiment.sub nano myExperiment.sub
Note: you can modify the entry for Your-email-Address in the template directly so it is set for future submissions.
### email address for user #SBATCH --mail-user=Your-email-Address
- See here for SLURM Command Summary
6. What the different storage areas are for (/home and /scratch)
/home: Storage for your program code, submission scripts and input and output files. This is network-based storage (200GB burstable to 250GB per user).
/scratch: High-performance storage used for storing temporary input and output files while a job is running.
For sequential jobs, please make use of scratch storage. Scratch storage is much faster than network storage, so jobs will complete quicker, not having to wait for I/O.
Please see the Scatch on Tango guide for details on creating scratch directories.
