I need to run longer than 7 days

Normally jobs should only be set to run 7 days or shorter.  If you need to run longer, please make sure to checkpoint your jobs and resubmit. If you cannot checkpoint for some reason and need to run longer, we have a very limited QOS that will allow you to run up to 14 days.  This is limited to one job per user at a time.

To use the qos specify it with the "-q long" switch.  Rememeber to set the wall clock time to the ammount of time you need.

For example:

sbatch -q long -p any -t 14-00:00:00 example-job-script
