Input file upload

Changed:

Once created locally (on your own machine) the archive with the input files, you can upload it to IGP, with the DM tools accessible in the Storage section. Change current path to the common /grid/gridit/spes_project/fluka and then to the personal directory within. If the input directory does not exist, create it.

Once created locally (on your own machine) the archive containing the input files, you can upload them to IGP, using the DM tools accessible in the Storage section. Change current path to the common /grid/gridit/spes_project/fluka and then to the personal directory defined before. If the input directory does not exist, create it.
 Then click on Upload, which prompts for the archive file selection. As target, you can leave Random Destination, or select a Storage Element you trust. Then press start to trigger the transfer, and wait for the Transfer OK message.

Parametric job submission

You are now ready to submit a FLUKA job to the grid. A FLUKA job is implemented as a Parametric job, i.e. a compound job made of N simple jobs, each of them identified by an integer. Each of the jobs differ from the other for few parameters, like the index, the input or output files, etc..

To submit such a job, move to the Job section in IGP. Although FLUKA users have not a dedicated graphic interface, it is available a template which simplifies the submission procedure. Click on Manage Job Template, then Job Template and you will get Job Template Fluka. For the actual submission, still in the Job section, click on Submit New Job and then Use Template. This will redirect you to the list of template, either personal or shared with other users. Click on the Action button corresponding to Job_Template_Fluka and then the button Edit. This shows up the template and allows you to customize it

To submit such a job, move to the Job section in IGP, and click on Submit New FLUKA Job. You will be redirected to the FLUKA dedicated submission interface, where you will define some parameters related to the job you want to submit.

  The following customization is suggested:
  • Change Job Name as desired
Changed:
<
<
  • Leave unchanged Executable
  • Modify Arguments like this:
    • first argument: %s, don't change it, indicates to the portal the parametric jobs order
    • second argument: change it to the archive name being used (silicon2 in the example before)
    • third argument: /alex/silicon2/, change it to the remote path in DM where you uploaded the archive
    • fourth argument: leave it blank to store the output files in the same path specified with third arguments, insert a valid remote path to store the output on a different location

  • Choose GRIDIT as VO
  • Standard Output : here the value %s returns by default the index of actual job part of the parametric submission. Change if you want a more meaningful output file name
  • Standard Error : here the value %s returns by default the index of actual job part of the parametric submission. Change if you want a more meaningful error file name
  • Change the Parameters attribute, inserting the number N of jobs being submitted (it must correspond to the highest index in the input files contained in the archive)
  • Parameter Start and Parameter Step can be left unchanged, although IGP supports custom values for these attributes.
>

  • Set properly Input, to the input file archive desired
  • Set Output to the remote directory where you want the job output to be copied. By default, this directory is the same containing input. If instead you want a different directory which doesn't exist, you have to create it using the proper DM option.
  • Set Number of Jobs and Start Number as indicated by the Help.
  The template obtained can be saved as a new template, or it can be used for the submission to the grid.

  • Waiting: IGP has accepted the job for the submission
  • Running: job is being executed in the grid site specified from the Site field
Line: 109 to 100
 
  • IGP considers a job Done when there are no failures due to IGP itself or the grid. For instance, if the execution fails because of a wrong input, but exits correctly to the the operating system, the grid, and therefore IGP, have no way to detect the failure, which is only at the application level.
  • Single jobs, or multiple selections, can be submitted again or canceled just selecting the job and applying for the desired option.
  • Clicking on the Action button in the row representing the job, and then Get Output, you can check the job Standard Output or Standard Error if available
Changed:

  • In IGP section My Data*-> *Advanced Settings you can enable mail notifications related to job status change, and proxy expiration.
