Submit your run script to a schedulerΒΆ

Many shared computer systems use a scheduler to determine in which order submitted jobs will run.

If your computer system uses the SLURM scheduler, then you can use the following command to submit your GEOS-Chem Classic run script to a computational queue:


The SLURM scheduler will then decide when your job starts based on paramaters such as current load on the system and past cluster usage (sometimes known as fairshare). If there is high demand on the cluster, your job may remain in pending state for a few hours (or sometimes days!) before it starts.

If your computer system uses a different scheduler (e.g. LSF, PBS, etc.) then ask your sysadmin or IT staff about the commands that are needed to submit jobs.
