Hi,

When i try running a job file named "jobfile", using the command:

qsub -l nodes=sxxx-nxxx My-Notebooks/job_file

it only runs for 10mins. To extend the wall time change the command to

qsub -l nodes=sxxx-nxxx,walltime=02:00:00 My-Notebooks/job_file

but this throws error, Alternately when i add the line -> "#PBS -l walltime=24:00:00" in my job file, same error is thrown again.

How can i extend the walltime on a targeted node.

Hi aanubhav,

The walltime limit depends on the queue server and if you are using enterprise or academia version of the software. To query the limits, run the following command:

qmgr -c "p s" | grep walltime

Enterprise customers have a default limit of 1 hour and total maximum limit of 8 hours. Academia customers have a default limit of 10 minutes and total maximum limit of 20 minutes.

I hope this is helpful, please let me know if you have any more questions!

Best Regards,

Sahira
