The Farm available for the High Energy Group IF-UASLP consists of several types of computers. hep00 is the main node, with disks and all software. 3 dual processor machines hep02, hep03, and hep04 are located in the Computer center and can only be accessed via the batch system. Other machines with monitors included are rutherford, cherenkov, charm, and sometimes fermi.
The batch system to distribute jobs to the different machines is called Fermilab Batch System New Generation (fbsng). Below we will show some examples how to use it. After a setup fbsng on whatever machine, you can see which nodes are up with fbs nodes, and the queues existing with fbs queues. To submit jobs, use fbs exec. A full user manual can be accessed here, and the there is a fbsng web site at Fermilab.
In general you need a script which will do the work for every job. The batch system will create two files in you home directory (*.err and *.out) containing the stdout and stderr of you job. It will also (optional) send mail to you.
In the following we will show two examples on how to use the farm in SLP.
