Batch Job SubmissionΒΆ

Batch job submission from containers is designed to work exactly like on a login node for the cluster. The workload will need to be annotated in order to get the necessary configuration injected at runtime.

Cluster Annotation Value Schedulers
Marble ccs.ornl.gov/batchScheduler true Slurm, LSF
Onyx ccs.ornl.gov/batchScheduler true LSF

You can add the required annotations to any workload object such as a Pod, Deployment, or a DeploymentConfig. Submitting a batch job from a container requires access to the OLCF shared filesystems so that annotation is also included.

metadata:
  annotations:
    ccs.ornl.gov/batchScheduler: "true"
    ccs.ornl.gov/fs: olcf

Full example of a deployment using a base image provided by OLCF.

Note

Batch job submission from containers uses SSH to access the submission host. If you use your own image you must install the openssh client package in your image.

apiVersion: apps/v1
kind: Deployment
metadata:
  name: test-jobsubmit
  annotations:
    ccs.ornl.gov/batchScheduler: "true"
    ccs.ornl.gov/fs: olcf
spec:
  replicas: 1
  selector:
    matchLabels:
      app: test-jobsubmit
  template:
      labels:
        app: test-jobsubmit
    spec:
      containers:
      - name: test-jobsubmit
        image: "image-registry.openshift-image-registry.svc:5000/openshift/ccs-rhel7-base-amd64:latest"
        args:
        - cat
        stdin: true
        stdinOnce: true

The annotation will install wrappers into /usr/bin:

Slurm

  • sbatch
  • squeue

LSF

  • bsub
  • bjobs
