The idea is to have run a long running job from my notebook, which may take 6-8 hours, and if i come next day, there should be interrupt with it.
If you're trying to keep the SSH connection from disconnecting, try the link iChase posted. Otherwise, check out screen (from lithos' post) or the "nohup" command.
I haven't used screen that much so can't comment on that, but nohup is pretty easy. Simply put "nohup" before the command and it will continue to run even if the session is disconnected.
# nohup somecommand
nohup: ignoring input and appending output to `nohup.out'
This will keep the command running and put all of the results to a file called 'nohup.out' in your current directory ...
