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,, can be recovered by copying it to the transfer server.

$ cp * /home/navidad/partages/echange/Fred
