<p class="MsoNormal">Dear list members,&nbsp; I hope I&#8217;m not mis-asking some questions, but you seem to be pretty much my only resource at this point-in-time.</p>

</span></span>We have a small batch farm, 1 head box, 4 batch boxes.&nbsp; Assuming that the head box is running, is there a command that I can issue to find out which of the batch boxes are running?<br>
<br>
</p>
<p class="MsoListParagraph" style="text-indent:-.25in"><span style="">2)<span style="font:7.0pt &quot;Times New Roman&quot;">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
</span></span>I did not configure this setup.&nbsp; The only way I&#8217;ve found to be able to spread four jobs across the four boxes is to specifically request a node by name.&nbsp; For example:<br>
<span style="font-family:&quot;Courier New&quot;">#PBS &#8211;l nodes=1:ppn=1<br>
#PBS &#8211;l nodes=vpaybatch01</span>&nbsp;&nbsp; (and here, for each of the remaining files I do 02, 03, 04)<br>
Is there some way that I can just qsub four jobs and have them each go to the next available batch box?</p>
