R on Biowulf login node (Biowulf)Date: 21 September 2012 12:09:03
From: steven fellini (sfellini@NIH.GOV)
Effective immediately, running R sessions on the Biowulf login node will no longer be permitted. Over the past few months users running R jobs have exhausted memory on the login node causing performance problems and system-hangs, and so will no longer be allowed. R jobs can be submitted to the batch system (http://biowulf.nih.gov/apps/R.html) or run by allocating interactive nodes (http://biowulf.nih.gov/user_guide.html#interactive).
