From: steven fellini (sfellini@NIH.GOV)
This is an important message for users of the 'swarm' command. The 'swarm' command allows users to easily submit large numbers of single-process jobs to the batch system. Effective TOMORROW, Tuesday September 13, the 'swarm' command will change in three ways: -- The command line syntax for 'swarm' will change -- 'swarm' will report memory usage for the job -- By default, the swarm scripts generated for the batch system will be in bash shell syntax instead of csh Please read the detailed description and examples at: http://biowulf.nih.gov/newswarm.html The previous 'swarm' command will remain available for 60 days as 'oswarm'. After 60 days the old version will no longer be available, so please start using the new version as soon as possible.
