As with most other HPC systems, LI-red and SeaWulf both use a batch processing system (we use PBS Torque) to manage the execution of computational jobs using the available resources. At the center of batch processing is the idea of of a program’s delayed execution. The user prepares their program for execution by first composing a script that specifies the size and length of a job and what is to be done, and then submitting this script to the appropriate batch queue. The batch queue system will then schedule the job to be run at an appropriate time.

To use Torque, the user must load the torque module, i.e.

module load torque/6.0.2
