Running R jobs

This section illustrates how to submit a small R job to a SLURM queue. The example job computes a Pythagorean triple.

Prepare an R input file with an appropriate filename, here named myjob.R:

# FILENAME:  myjob.R

# Compute a Pythagorean triple.
a = 3
b = 4
c = sqrt(a*a + b*b)
c     # display result

Prepare a job submission file with an appropriate filename, here named myjob.sub:

# FILENAME:  myjob.sub

module load r

# --vanilla:
# --no-save: do not save datasets at the end of an R session
R --vanilla --no-save < myjob.R

submit the job
