I get an error when submitting a job, but I do not know which option is bad

The correspondence varies depending on the error.

  • qsub: Unknown option

The "qsub: Unknown option" error also occurs when there is an error in the line description starting with "#$" in the job script, besides the option of the qsub command. A common mistake is putting a space before and after the character "=". Please try deleting the space around "=".

  • Job is rejected, h_rt can not be longer than 10 mins with this group

If you do not specify the TSUBAME group with the -g option or newgrp, it is considered "Trial run".
"Trial run" has limitation only within 10 minutes, this error occurs when the specified h_rt option specifies more than 10 minutes

In case of "Trial run" please modify the h_rt option to 0:10:0.
If you want to execute it other than "Trial execution", specify the TSUBAME group with the -g option or newgrp.
* In this case, please confirm that you are participating in the appropriate TSUBAME group and that the TSUBAME group has points.
For the TSUBAME group please check TSUBAME portal usage guidance

  • Unable to run job: Job is rejected. h_rt must be specified.
