Create External Uploads¶
Creating new External Uploads follows the general explanation - clicking the "Create" button .
It is assumed that the uploaded files belong to a single command-line job originated outside of the Exabyte platform.
Open Upload Dialog¶
Clicking "Create" as prescribed above takes the user to the Upload Dialog where the data can be uploaded. The dialog contains the following parameters.
The name of the Job
Job Script File¶
The name of (or path to) the Job script file. Will be parsed and shown inside the job as input file after upload is complete.
Standard Output file¶
The name of (or path to) the file containing the standard (textual) output. Will be parsed and shown inside the job as the outpuf file after upload is complete.
Human-readable description of the uploaded data (optional).
The file archive containing the data. The following must be asserted:
- the archive type is ".zip"
- the size of the archive is less than the maximum size (as shown in the helper message)
- the archive contains the job files at the top level
To demonstrate the last point, here's an acceptable content of the archive:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
# Desired archive content . |____CONTCAR |____DOSCAR |____EIGENVAL |____IBZKPT |____INCAR |____job.rms |____KPOINTS |____OSZICAR |____OUTCAR |____PCDAT |____POSCAR |____vasprun.xml
and, below is the equivalent nested structure that should be avoided:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
# Undesired content . |____directory | |____CONTCAR | |____DOSCAR | |____EIGENVAL | |____IBZKPT | |____INCAR | |____job.rms | |____KPOINTS | |____OSZICAR | |____OUTCAR | |____PCDAT | |____POSCAR | |____vasprun.xml
Creating an archive on a UNIX-based system
If we assume that
job_dir is the folder containing the job files, the archive can be created using the following example command:
cd job_dir; zip -r9 ../archive.zip . ; cd -
When ready, click "Submit" button to initiate the upload.
