HPC Grid Tutorial: How to Run an Interactive Job

What is an Interactive Job?

Interactive jobs are those that provide a shell prompt, which allows users to execute commands and scripts as they would on the login nodes. The command qsub -I should be used to start an interactive session. You do not need to SSH to the node after it is assigned.

1. Log on to the Grid.

2. Type: qsub -I 

This will create a single ssh session with 1 core and 1 GB of RAM.
