Number of Running Jobs on the Cluster.

Asked by Haider on 2017-12-19

Hi,
I am running madgraph on a cluster, by looking at the "cluster.py" file I have "maximum_submited_jobs = 2500". However, by looking at jobs queue in the cluster itself I find the number of running jobs always around 100. Is there a way to control the number of the running jobs at the cluster?

Thank you

Hi,

If you look here:
https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/wiki/Plugin

You have a plugin playing with some hidden options of the run_card which control the number of jobs submitted on the cluster.
Remember that splitting too much is not a good idea since you will be hit by the latency of your cluster to assign jobs to you.

But if you really want to increase the number of jobs, you can set the job_strategy parameter of the run_card to 2 to use the sampling dedicated to loop-induced process.
(look at the loop induced paper for more details)

Cheers,

Olivier
