Interactive Job (SLURM: Comet)
Answer

I'm using the comet HPC system and like to run interactive jobs for testing and R.

It was easy to do using PBS qsub commands but I'm lost on how to do it on comet.

thanks! emoticon

I am very new to SLURM as well (In fact I got my access to comet yesterday!). Let me try:

1srun -p shared --pty --mem 500 -t 0-06:00 /bin/bash


This works for a 1-processor job for 6 hours. You can read more here:https://rc.fas.harvard.edu/resources/running-jobs/#Interactive_jobs_and_srun

If there is a better way of doing this, I am keen to know!
