sinteractive allows a user to submit a job that can be interacted with while running.

Accessing the terminal

  1. ssh into using your preferred ssh client(such as PuTTY)
  2. login with your username and password.

Using sinteractive

In your terminal:

  1. $ sinteractive
  2. You will be prompted with several questions about your job(Account name, memory required, time required), answer them to submit your job.
  3. Your job will be submitted and you should be granted an interactive batch session
    1. If you receive an error regarding an inability to display, you need to enable x11 forwarding, or follow the next set of commands

Using xTerm in fastX

If you do not have x11 forwarding, xterm provides it built in for you.

  1. Login to FastX by entering into your address bar.
  2. You will get a notification saying the site is unsafe. The site is in fact safe, so you must tell google to take you there anyway(hit advanced details to see that option).
  3. Login with your RIT username and password
  4. Launch a session with xTerm
  5. Follow the commands from the Using sinteractive section 
  6. Your interactive batch session should be working now
