Submit Multiple Jobs

When a list of similar jobs is to be submitted, it is much more efficient to submit them all at once.

Note: When submitting multiple jobs use the same environment and the same resources, and the same priority level is scheduled for each job. Each job has its unique identification.
  1. Prepare a file with one command on each line. Empty lines are ignored and lines that begin with # are considered comments.
    # Example of file used to submit multiple jobs at once. 
    sleep 10
    sleep 11
    sleep 12
    sleep 13
  2. Use the option -f to specify the command file, as in the following example:
    % nc run -r unix -e BASE -f commandFile

All jobs submitted with this method share the same environment, the same resources, and are scheduled at the same priority level. Each job has its own ID.
