  1. Multiple single threaded jobs

    Hi, We have a cluster running PBS Pro and I'm trying to run a whole bunch of singlethreaded jobs. Basically we have a code that can only run on one CPU and I want to utilize the cluster to run a parametric suite. The problem is that everytime I request one node and one cpu from PBS Pro it gets put on a different node and as a result other folks don't have access to it. Since our nodes have 8 cpus each I'd like to be able to lunch 8 instances of this code on one node, that way I don't take up 8 nodes. I tried running something like this: cd /case1/ ./run_code & cd /case2/ ./run_code & . . . But that doesn't work since it terminates the PBS Pro job. Is there a way for PBS to wait for these jobs to finish? Thanks.
