I am trying to submit a job to a supercomputer using slurm. The script is as follows


#SBATCH -n 40  
#SBATCH -N 1  
#SBATCH -t 3-0:00  
#SBATCH --mem=64000  
#SBATCH -o myjob.o  
#SBATCH -e myjob.e  
#SBATCH --mail-type=ALL  
#SBATCH --gres=gpu:2  

module load sage

But it has errors:

sbatch: error: Sending email to for events: 271
sbatch: error: Batch job submission failed: Invalid generic resource (gres) specification

How to fix this problem? Thank you very much.

Your bash script should say e.g. sage HPC2.sage instead of trying to use two lines like that. Whoever offers access to this supercomputer probably has a website with (a link to) relevant documentation about the gres specification. In any case, be sure to read the documentation of the correct version. You can also try sbatch --gres=help. Anyway, why do you want GPU's? It seems unlikely that a SageMath computation would use them. Maybe try omitting the line with --gres entirely.

@rburing, thank you very much! I removed the line with --gres and now it works.
