Using CRAB to Submit Jobs on a PBS Cluster


  • CRAB version higher or equal to 2.7.0;
  • The pbs_python module installed (how to install this module here);


  • In the crab.cfg configuration file, you have just to put under the [CRAB] section:
    scheduler = pbs
    use_server = 0

  • In the [PBS] section of crab.cfg, use the following optional parameters:
    • queue = pbs_queue_to_use,
      putting default you use the default queue in your local PBS config
    • resources = resource_1 = value, resource_2 = value, etc

Both wrapper stdout/stderr and job script output files are placed in your crab_*/res directory by default
