How to create non-parametric subtasks in Windows HPC Server 2008R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do I create a non-parametric subtask e.g. using the Windows HPC Developer Pack?

    I know how to create and submit jobs and (parametric) tasks but I cannot find documentation on how to specify subtasks.

  • HPC doesn't support subtask.

    Parametric Sweep task will expand s set of tasks and run them, basically, they are not subtask, when you click the parametric task root node, you can find, it is not a task, but a master record:

    "This is a master record for a Parametric Sweep task.  Please select individual sub-tasks to view their output."

  • Apparently it does, as is also written in the last sentence in the quote in your reply "Please select individual sub-tasks...". It is also written that these subtasks will have a decimal in the task identifier.

    My question was if there is any (possibly undocumented) way to submit subtasks through the HPC framework without manipulating the SQL database directly?
