In many occasions we may need to name the output file of a slurm script different to "slurm-123456.out" (where 123456 is the jobID).
In order to change the name, use the option:
sbatch allows for a filename pattern to contain one or more replacement symbols. The syntax is a percentage sign "%" followed by a letter.
As a pracical example, let's say the user wants to name the output file as "myLog-123456.out" (where 123456 is the jobID). The settings should be:
As another example, consider that the user wants the first part of the output file to have exactly the same name as the job. The symbol "%x" is used for that:
Then, the output file will be named: "CaseReynolds100-123456.out"
Other replacement symbols are:
|\\||Do not process any of the replacement symbols.|
|%%||The character "%".|
|%A||Job array's master job allocation number.|
|%a||Job array ID (index) number.|
|%J||jobid.stepid of the running job. (e.g. "128.0")|
|%j||jobid of the running job.|
|%N||short hostname. This will create a separate IO file per node.|
|%n||Node identifier relative to current job (e.g. "0" is the first node of the running job) This will create a separate IO file per node.|
|%s||stepid of the running job.|
|%t||ask identifier (rank) relative to current job. This will create a separate IO file per task.|
