2 Running interactive sessions and batch scripts on Xanadu

Xanadu uses the SLURM (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management) language to manage workloads.

2.1 Interactive session

2.1.1 Important: All actions that require CPU or memory should be run from an interactive session to avoid jamming the head node.

The head node is like a lobby where everyone enters a space, but actions should not be taken here. You should request a ‘room’ or interactive session in which to conduct your business.

To see if you are on the head node you can use the hostname command.
