Submitting jobs to the queue

You must ssh to the computer aqfctl first, see CUChem/Networking.

Our queue system is Sun Grid Engine (use this name if you try to google for more information). There is lots of information on the internet. For example, see .

To use the queue system, we must source the SGE configuration files to set up environment varibles. In bash, do (in csh/tcsh, use the .csh file instead):

source /export/sge6.2_U7/ChemQ/common/

You must submit jobs from aqfctl.
