Using Hyak efficiently

Unsure of whether you are using Hyak efficiently or running out of memory? Check the Hyak Grid Report to see the status of nodes and memory usage.

  1. Select the appropriate group from the pull down menu at the top (i.e. stf).
  2. Figure out what nodes you are using.
    • To see all your submitted jobs, run      showq -w user=<user_name>
    • To find which node a job is using, use the job id found with the above command and run checkjob <JOBID>
    • If you’re running a job on the backfill queue, you can then find the ownership of that node using: pbsnodes <n#####>
