How do I submit an Array of Jobs?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

An array of jobs is a job consisting of a range of independent identical tasks.

You submit an array of jobs by using the qsub command with the -t option like this:

qsub -t 2-10:2 serial.sh

where the -t option defines the task index range (check qsub manpages for more details).
