Saving Files

It is possible that your jobs might not complete as you anticipated, leaving half-finished data around. If these are stored on /state/partition1 on one of the compute nodes, it is possible to get them out by copying them onto your home directory. Either ssh onto the node and copy the files or scp the files directly from the head node. In either case, you will need to know the name of the compute node where the files are; this should be in a log file.

$ ssh compute-0-j
$ cp /state/partition1/<my files> /home/<my home dir>/<destination dir>
$ scp compute-0-j:/state/partition1/<my files> /home/<my home dir>/<destination dir>
