Applies To: Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 R2, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2, Windows HPC Server 2008 R2

In HPC Cluster Manager, in Job Management, you can monitor, manage, and submit cluster jobs. The topics in this section describe job and task properties and states, how to monitor, manage and submit cluster jobs, and how to view information and status of clusrun commands.


Job templates are your primary method for defining custom job submission policies for your cluster. A job template allows you to associate a set of default values and value constraints for job properties with a particular set of users. For more information about creating job templates for your cluster, see Job Templates.

Additional considerations

  • Job scheduler configuration determines how to allocate resources to queued jobs. When you configure the HPC Job Scheduler Service, you can set scheduling policy (such as balanced or queued mode, preemption and backfilling), error handling, and job history options. For more information, see Configure the HPC Job Scheduler Service.

  • HPC Cluster Manager provides several charts and reports to track the job statistics for your cluster. For more information, see Charts and Reports: HPC Cluster Manager.
