  • The following is a PBS Script template that serves as an example.
  • You can download the script here. Make sure to edit the appropriate fields before attempting to submit a job.

Warning

When creating a PBS script, make sure to include a blank line at the end or else the last line in the script may not be executed.

#PBS -N [INSERT NAME]           # job name
#PBS -l nodes=2:ppn=4           # number of nodes and cores per node required
#PBS -l pmem=2gb                # memory per core
#PBS -l walltime=15:00          # duration of the job (ex: 15 min)
#PBS -q testflight-coda         # queue name (where job is submitted)
#PBS -j oe                      # combine output and error messages into 1 file
#PBS -o [INSERT NAME].out .     # output file name
#PBS -m abe                     # event notification, set to email on start, end, or fail
#PBS -M [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS]  # email to send notifications to

cd $PBS_O_WORKDIR 

for i in {1..5}
do 
    echo "Test $i"
done

  • For this example, the name was testflightTest and the queue was testflight-coda.
  • After the fields are filled in, the jobs can be submitted with qsub testflightTest.pbs.
  • testflightTest.out should look like this:
