Verification: Check Job Completion and Output
Updated: July 23, 2010
Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008 R2
After submitting a job, check the state of your tasks and verify the output of your sample job.
If you do not specify Standard Output and Standard Error files for your task, the results are directed to the Job Scheduler service database. The results appear as the task’s output and message fields. The database stores up to 4 KB of data per task. Any additional data beyond 4 KB is truncated. If you specify the Standard Output and Standard Error files, the task output is directed to those locations and is not stored in the Job Scheduler service database.
To check the state of your tasks:
In HPC Job Manager, you can monitor the state of your job and tasks and view error messages in the Job View dialog box. To open the dialog box, double-click the name of your job in the job list.
At a command prompt window:
Job listtasks <ID>
For HPC PowerShell:
Get-HpcJob –id <ID>|get-hpctask|select ID, Type, State, ErrorMessage
If any of the tasks failed, use the error messages to help troubleshoot the issue.
