TIP OF THE WEEK

By Massimo

Interactive LSF jobs can be requested using the -I option of bsub:
bsub -I
bsub -Is
bsub -Ip

The -Is and -Ip options create a pseudo terminal, and should be used to open an interactive shell (i.e.: bsub -Is /bin/bash will start a bash shell).

One can even request interactive parallel jobs:
bsub -n 2 -Is /bin/bash
The above line will start an interactive shell and will reserve a second processor. You will be logged in to the first processor. To find out where the second processor of your interactive job is, check the contents of the environment variable LSB_HOSTS.
