Useful ssh commands on Datarmor or other supercomputers

When you run simulations on Datarmor, all the simulation files will normally be stored in isis-tmp in your home directory (see Datarmor configuration).

Look at the job queue

$ qstat

Look at the status of a job

$ qstat –f JobID

For example

$ qstat –f 1234567{].service0

Read the simulation log

If a simulation fails, then the log will be found in the file simulation-sim…-output.txt. To read this file:

$ cat simulation-sim…-output.txt

Rerun simulations within a simulation plan

If certain simulations (for example simulations 5 to 10) within a plan need to be re-run, they can be submitted directly:

$ qsub –J 5-10 simulation-sim…-script.seq

Recovering results that that have not been returned

If the simulation has completed correctly but the results have not been returned, the simulation file, simulation-sim...-result.zip, can be recovered by copying it to the transfer server.

$ cp *-result.zip /home/navidad/partages/echange/Fred
