Re^3: How to write a single BATCH file to run multiple batch files?

Solntsev Pasha

Dear Siddheshwar.

For example, if you use PBS as your job manager, you can reserve say 8 processors. Then you can start two FF processes and force them to use only 4 processors. Relevant part of you PBS script presented below.

#PBS -l nodes=1:ppn=8

mpirun -np 4 /path/to/firefly ..........   &
mpirun -np 4 /path/to/firefly ..........

I have never tried to do this, but you can try.

Good luck

>Rightly said by you. My question was incomplete Sir. Ok let me put it properly now. I want to run say 2 instances of FIREFLY8, both through different batch files. SO instead of going to the 2 batch files individually I want to launch both of them at once using a single batch file. And additionally I want this file to launch both the batch files parallely.

>>Shortly, your question is not related to Firefly program. Even more, absolutely not clear what you are asking. Operation system? problem? Did you try Google? I would be glad to help you with bash/sh scripts but could you be more specific with you problem.

>>All the best.
