log of the running job


Hi,

I was running some jobs on my account in Linux machines. It was supposed to run for more than 10 hours but it was terminated before that without completing it. Codes are fine, I have run this many time. There was no power outage, and server was not shutdown. Looks like admin is terminating my running jobs. How can I log the events so that I can find out the reason? I am not a root user.

Thanks.

you can set simple while loop that gives some output to your log file in some time interval. If your job is terminated by admin there may be hardly any way to say goodbye before shutting down as there may be no shutting down when stopped & force killed.

Have you asked the admin directly why they are terminating your jobs? I would start by asking the admin of the server what they are doing and finding out if it actually is them terminating it.

It may also be that your cpu time for a process is limited by ulimit.

Code:
ulimit -a
Under cpu time in seconds it will tell you how much cpu time your processes are limited to (or unlimited).

Code:
ulimit -t
Will show you just the value set in cpu time.
