Description (last modified by ros)

Hi there,

here is another walltime problem with archer. I want to submit this little script to the queue:

#!/bin/bash --login
#
#PBS -q serial
#PBS -l cput=12:00:00
#PBS -A "n02-NEK016083"

rsync -az -P /work/n02/n02/till/xgvwt/archive/xgvwt?.p* $RDF/xgvwt/archive

This is what happens:

till@eslogin006:/work/n02/n02/till/xgvwt/archive> qsub ~/bin/RDFt
qsub: Archer: Please specify walltime.

Obviously I have specified the walltime in one of the #PBS options (as I did on hector), but archer seems to want it in a different format or so?

Thank you very much!

Till

Hi Till,

You need to specify the walltime with the -l walltime option E.g. for 20 minutes.

#PBS -l walltime=00:20:00

To run in the serial queue you also need to replace

#PBS -q serial

with

#PBS -l select=serial=true:ncpus=1

Further information on PBS settings can be found in the ARCHER user guide.

Cheers,
Ros.
