MONSooN job time limit

UM Version: 8.2



I'm a new user of the UM on MONSooN. When setting up a UM job with the UMUI I see that you need to set some values for the LoadLeveler? resources such as job memory limit and job time limit, and similarly under the re-submission options you again have to select the re-submission job time limit. I was wondering if you could advise me as to what range of values are normally recommended for these, and in particular what the time limit for a single job to run is?

Many thanks,

Hi Matt,

I wouldn't worry about the setting for job memory limit, I would leave it the same as the job you copied from. All 8.2 jobs that I've seen have this set to 1Gb.

The maximum time a job can run on MONSooN for is 3 hours.

In case you are not aware of it there is a MONSooN collaboration twiki which contains lots of useful information.
