On the 21st of October 2021 we will be deploying multi-factor authentication on the HPC login nodes (ShARC & Bessemer) for all password logins.
For more information please see our page on this change.
Department or research group-specific nodes in Bessemer¶
Running Slurm batch jobs or interactive sessions on private nodes¶
To run Slurm jobs on private nodes you will need to specify at least one of:
A Slurm Account
A Slurm Partition
A Slurm QoS (Quality of Service)
You will be told what to specify when you are granted access to the private nodes.
To start an interactive session on a private node you want something like the following:
srun --account=SOMEACCOUNT --partition=SOMEPARTITION --qos=SOMEQOS --pty /bin/bash -i
To submit a batch start that will run on private node(s) you want something like the following in your batch job submission script:
#!/bin/bash #SBATCH --account=SOMEACCOUNT #SBATCH --partition=SOMEPARTITION #SBATCH --qos=SOMEQOS
