  • Hi!

    I want jobs submitted to HPC Job Manager to start at a specific time. Is this possible? It seems as a pretty elementary function, but I can't find it anywhere!

    Regards,

    Daniel

  • Hi,


    The HiperLogic Activation Filter (HAF)  includes this functionality and we have customers using it with Abaqus.

    Hi,

    How are you submitting the jobs? through the Cluster manager or using APIs?

  • The jobs are submitted directly from the application, in this case Abaqus/CAE. Abaqus generates a HPC job XML-file with defined tasks. The job then turns up in the queue in Job manager.

    The question is both specific for my needs, but also is it possible to do this in a general way?

     

    Thanks,

  • Hi Daniel,

    Unfortunately, there is no way of setting time when you expect your job to start. Job submitted to Windows HPC Scheduler will start as soon as possible depending on the resource requirements, other jobs in the queue, available resources, current scheduling policy setting etc.

    I think one of the possible workarounds might be to use Task Scheduler, which is part of Windows, to execute job submitting commands at specific time.
