Moving jobs on HPC Cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I'm new to Microsoft HPC. Can I move running jobs between nodes? I use Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 with HPC Pack 2008 R2 SP4 for workstations.

    I mean moving jobs automatically (for example from the loaded node to the unloaded node), or manually from administration or using powershell for example.

    Thank you.

  • Once the job is running you are executing service application on your compute node.Moving job between nodes would mean to run you service application on different compute node which in turn means to close your application (or wait until it ends) and re-run it on new compute node.

    I would suggest to wait until your service applications end (or some of your taks assigned to the job end) and re-execute job with different settings (nodegroup,numcores etc) or just cancel running job and re-execute it with new parameters.I don't think you can change job's resources durnig runtime however you have shrink/grow option available in scheduler settings.
