New table shows Cheyenne system activity

September 11, 2017

Users can now get a quick, timely look at Cheyenne system activity with the expanded CISL Resource Status web page. A new table on the page shows the level of activity in each Cheyenne queue, including the number of jobs running, how many nodes are in use, and how many jobs are waiting to start in the queue. It also displays the number of jobs that are being held, which can happen for a variety of reasons.

The information is intended to help Cheyenne users decide when to submit jobs and which queue to specify. Users can check on the status of their own individual jobs by running qstat -u $USER as detailed in Managing and monitoring jobs. The expanded section shows an example of qstat output and addresses what to do if a job is held.
