Adding ~600 task to job takes much longer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I am trying to add approximate ~600 tasks in a Job, however it takes around 30 sec to 2 mins to load the job in the HPC Schedular

     When i met MS guys at HPC 2008 in Austin, I was told that there is another way to add this job like Job.AddTasks rather then Job.AddTask

     

    Thanks for your help

  • Assuming your tasks all do basically the same thing but across a varied set of data, you can use a Parameter Sweep to accomplish your goal.

    Check out this blog post for some more details:

    Good luck!

  • Hi Josh,

     

    Thanks for the reply, however all the task do exactly same thing, however the input to  the tasks are not numeric they are file names, which we dont have control on.'

    When i met you guys at HPC 2008 in austin, the lead programmer for Job schedualr told me there is another way where i can do job.addtasks(). He gave me his card but unfortunatly i lost it, so i guess  i should check here
