View a Job or Task
Applies To: Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003
You can view job or a task at any time. Viewing a job or a task in Job Manager means viewing the job or task property sheets (or both), as well as the status the information in the upper pane. Viewing a job or task in the command-line interface (CLI) means viewing the same information in tabular form. The following procedures show how to view the job and task properties sheets or the CLI equivalent.
To view a job property sheet
Navigate to the Job Properties sheet for the job. If the job is in the queue, you can do this by double-clicking it. If the job exists only as a template, you can open the Job Properties sheet by clicking File, then Submit with template….
On the Job Properties sheet, step through the tabs to view the job properties.
To view a job using the CLI, type:
job view [/scheduler:<host>] <jobID>
This will list the job properties in tabular form.
Job view in the CLI does not display the tasks. To view all the tasks in a job, use task view [/scheduler:<host>] <jobID>.
To view a task property sheet
If the job containing the task is in the job queue:
Single-click the job to display a list of its tasks in the lower pane.
To prevent the screen from freezing temporarily, single-clicking a job initiates a background process. If errors occur in this process, they are reported by an alert message that appears in the in the lower left corner of the Job Manager screen. For example:
! 2 Alert(s)
To view the errors, click the alert message.
In the lower pane, double-click the task.
If the job exists only as a template:
Open the Job Properties sheet by clicking File, then Submit with template….
On the Job Properties sheet, click the Tasks tab, and select your task. The properties will be listed in the lower part of the sheet.
To view a task for a specific task using the CLI, type:
task view [/scheduler:<host>] <jobID.taskID>
To view task properties for all tasks in a job using the CLI, type:
task view [/scheduler:<host>] <jobID>
This will list the task properties in tabular form.
