Submitting Jobs to Specific Grid Nodes

Hello, I have a few nodes in my grid.  How can I, when I run a SASGSUB, specify which node to run the batch job on?  As of now, I have to either close the hosts, or nodes, except the one I want to run SASGSUB speciflcally. I'm still in a testing mode with my Grid. Is there a SASGSUB syntax I can use to choose which host/node to run my job on?  Do I need to create a queue that only runs on a specific host/node? Thank you for you help.

Re: Submitting Jobs to Specific Grid Nodes

As you say, you could definite machine-specific queues.

 

You can also define a machine-specific resource on each machine, and then specify that resource name in the reqres job option when submitting a job.  There may be a way to simply pass a machine's name in the resources requested string of the reqres option, but I didn't find it after a quick scan of doc.  The reqres job option is covered here.  For more information, please consult the Platform LSF Reference documentation.

Hi @kcpython,

 

besides the GRID-specific options (very powerful), you yocould make use of SAS/CONNECT. With rsubmit you can submit jobs to the node you require. Are you familiar with SAS/CONNECT?

We have SAS/CONNECT, but I am not familiar with it.  Is rsubmit done in a SAS session or on the command line?
