Obsolete PBS directives - Monsoon2/NEXCS

Reported by: ros Owned by: um_support
Component: Other Keywords: PBSObsoleteResources ppn
Cc: Platform: Monsoon2
UM Version:


Using PBS directives

-l nodes=1:ppn=1

is an "old" method of specifying resources. This should no longer be used on Monsoon2/NEXCS and is liable to generate errors.

An example error message is:

qsub: error: global name 'PBSObsoleteResources' is not defined

but has also been known that a task may just submit-fail with no error messages left anywhere.


  • -l select=X:ncpus=X
  • -l select=X:ncpus=X:mem=XGB, etc instead.
