How to specify cpu nodes for analysis
Answer
7/22/20 4:57 PM
Hi,

I am trying to submit a job that uses multiple CPU nodes on the COMET cluster. I usually test my scripts with salloc first but I keep getting an error message when I try the following command:

salloc -t 1:00:00 -p compute -N 1 -n 24

The error message I receive is:

"salloc: error: bank_limit plugin: expired user, can't submit job
salloc: error: Job submit/allocate failed: Invalid account or account/partition combination specified"

How do I go about requesting a cpu node for the comet cluster?

Thanks
