Import Command Line Jobs to Web Interface¶
Note about Job Scripts¶
We use the content of the job batch script file in order to collect job information and create an entry for it inside the web interface. Currently, only simple job scripts containing a single execution command are supported. Hence, the user should make sure that the script's content is properly formatted and straightforward.
In this page, the reader can find sample job script files for running Job simulations via Command Line Interface that can be used as template. The general structure of such scripts is instead explained here.
Keep job scripts simple
Please avoid using complex formatting and extra indentations or spacing in the job script.
Open Web Terminal¶
Import New Job Results¶
In order to submit a new job through command-line interface, and then view the corresponding output files under the Web Interface, the following directive should be added to the job submission script.
#PBS -R y
#PBS -R y directive is always enabled by default, but it can still be added manually as a failsafe.
This directive instructs our software to automatically parse the output of the calculation, and send back the results to the web interface. After adding this directive, the job can then be submitted as usual.
This feature can conversely be disabled by inserting the following other directive option in the job submission script.
#PBS -R n
In the below video, we first navigate to a directory under the command-line interface where we have copied the contents of the VASP template Job. Here, we edit the job submission script to insert the aforementioned
#PBS -R y directive for completeness, even though as explained earlier this directive is already enabled by default.
