Supported batch job systems
Batch job system is a system to process batch jobs. One needs to set
batch_type to one of the following values:
batch_type is set to
Shell, dpdispatcher will generate a bash script to process jobs. No extra packages are required for
Due to lack of scheduling system,
Shell runs all jobs at the same time. To avoid running multiple jobs at the same time, one could set
0 (means infinity) to generate only one job with multiple tasks.
Slurm is a job scheduling system used by lots of HPCs. One needs to make sure slurm has been setup in the remote server and the related environment is activated.
SlurmJobArray is used, dpdispatcher submits Slurm jobs with job arrays. In this way, several dpdispatcher
tasks map to a Slurm job and a dpdispatcher
job maps to a Slurm job array. Millions of Slurm jobs can be submitted quickly and Slurm can execute all Slurm jobs at the same time. One can use
slurm_job_size to control how many Slurm jobs are contained in a Slurm job array.
OpenPBS or PBSPro
OpenPBS is an open-source job scheduling of the Linux Foundation and PBS Profession is its commercial solution. One needs to make sure OpenPBS has been setup in the remote server and the related environment is activated.
Note that do not use
PBS for Torque.
The Terascale Open-source Resource and QUEue Manager (TORQUE) is a distributed resource manager based on standard OpenPBS. However, not all OpenPBS flags are still supported in TORQUE. One needs to make sure TORQUE has been setup in the remote server and the related environment is activated.
IBM Spectrum LSF Suites is a comprehensive workload management solution used by HPCs. One needs to make sure LSF has been setup in the remote server and the related environment is activated.
Bohrium is the cloud platform for scientific computing. Read Bohrium documentation for details.
DistributedShell is used to submit yarn jobs. Read Support DPDispatcher on Yarn for details.
