Wondering if we should send this question off to your contacts. I think if we could get examples on how to do the following we could really customize this to match a lot of situations.
Say we have a submit script that works like this which calls 4 nodes with 12 cores each. The executable is job.sh with an input file of test.inp.
#!/bin/bash #PBS -V #PBS -l select=4:ncpus=12 #PBS -N jobA #PBS -j oe mpirun job.sh -input test.inp
Is there a way we could add some variables to the above script? For example could we set the select and input file to a variable as listed below as (VAR1) & (VAR2):
#!/bin/bash #PBS -V #PBS -l select=$(VAR1):ncpus=12 #PBS -N jobA #PBS -j oe mpirun job.sh -input $(VAR2)
Then possibly in the “Job Options” section of Open OnDemand add a drop down that would populate these variables based on a drop down menu for ‘$(VAR1)’ of (1, 2, 3, 4) and selected/browsable input file for $(VAR2)?
Maybe there is a better way to add select-able options to a job script, if so we’d like suggestions?
Let me know if this should be tagged as a feature request.
