Job Submission Queues
Batch Queues on the Sapelo2
There are different queues defined on Sapelo2. Users are required to specify, in the job submission script or as job submission command line arguments, the queue and the resources needed by the job in order for it to be assigned to compute node(s) that have enough available resources (such as number of cores, amount of memory, GPU cards, etc).
Users can also specify the type of nodes to be used for a given job. The table below summarizes the queues defined and the compute nodes that they target:
|Queue Name||Node Type||Description||Notes|
|batch||AMD||48-core, 128GB RAM, AMD Opteron, IB interconnect||Regular nodes.|
|batch||Intel||28-core, 64GB RAM, Intel Xeon, IB interconnect||Regular nodes.|
|highmem_q||HIGHMEM, AMD||48-core, 512GB RAM or 1TB, AMD Opteron, IB interconnect||For high memory jobs.|
|highmem_q||HIGHMEM, Intel||28-core, 1TB, Intel Xeon, IB interconnect||For high memory jobs.|
|gpu_q||GPU, K40||16-core, 128GB RAM, Intel Xeon, 8 NVIDIA K40m GPUs, IB interconnect||For GPU-enabled jobs.|
|gpu_q||GPU, K20||12-core, 96GB RAM, Intel Xeon, 7 NVIDIA K20Xm GPUs, IB interconnect||For GPU-enabled jobs.|
Each node with AMD Opteron processors has an AMD node feature. Similarly, each node with Intel Xeon processors has an Intel node feature. Jobs intended for an Intel HIGHMEM node can be submitted to the highmem_q and request a node with Intel node feature, as shown in the example below.
Nodes purchased by specific labs have different node features and are targeted by different queues. This information is provided separately to the users who have priority in using these buyin nodes.
