For a batch job on an IU research computing system, how do I specify the required parallel file system?

The Data Capacitor II (DC2) and Data Capacitor Wide Area Network II (DC-WAN2) parallel file systems are mounted on the research computing systems at Indiana University. To specify one of these file systems as a requirement for your batch job, indicate it in the nodes directive of your TORQUE job script.

For example, if your job requires four nodes, two processors per node:

File system Example
DC2 #PBS -l nodes=4:ppn=2:dc2
DC-WAN2 #PBS -l nodes=4:ppn=2:dcwan

Specifying a file system in your script directs TORQUE to dispatch your job to only those compute nodes with that file system mounted.
