sbatch: Submit a batch job with a time limit of 30 minutes.
$ sbatch --time=${00:30:00} ${path-to-job-sh}
try on your machine

The command "sbatch" is typically used to submit batch jobs to a cluster or a supercomputer for execution. In this specific command:

  • "--time=${00:30:00}" is an option to specify the maximum time limit for the job. This option sets the limit to 30 minutes (00 hours, 30 minutes, and 00 seconds).

  • "${path-to-job-sh}" represents the path to the job script file that will be executed. It could be a shell script (ending with .sh) or any other executable file.

So, this command is used to submit a job with a time limit of 30 minutes using the "sbatch" command, where the job's actual script file is provided through the variable ${path-to-job-sh}.
