I want to use Run Until Canceled without specifying Maximum Cores. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to keep an HPC Job open, even after all of the tasks have finished with success or failure, until I decide that its finished.  Depending on the job, I may need to submit additional tasks.  Setting the Run Until Canceled = True in the Job template works, but then HPC requires me to set Auto Calculate Maximum = False.  From there I have to specify a value for Maximum Cores.  This then locks up those x cores until the job finishes and makes them unavailable to other jobs.  How can I use the Run Until Canceled feature without specifying the Maximum Cores for the job--I want this setting auto calculated?

    Thank you,

  • Hi Tiffany,

      under this situation you have to add a "monitoring" task in the job, and the job won't finish until that task finishes. And it is you to decide when to finish the task.
