Job Scheduling

GPC was Migrated to the SLURM Scheduler

Resource management and load balancing are controlled by GPC’s scheduler. Running a batch job on GPC begins with creating a wrapper script, followed by submitting to one of the queues via the scheduler. Previously GPC had used SGE as its job scheduler but starting January 2021, it was migrated to the SLURM scheduler. During the transition period both SGE and SLURM schedulers were available, on non-overlapping nodes. The new SLURM converted nodes are now available in SLURM's "normal" and "highmem" partitions.

All nodes have now been converted to SLURM. 

For SLURM job submission guidelines, please see our new SLURM documentation which includes a guide on converting SGE jobs to SLURM among other useful commands.

For legacy SGE instructions, please see our existing SGE documentation page.
