Filter and Sort the Job List

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

In HPC Cluster Manager, you can monitor the jobs submitted to the cluster. In the job list, each row represents a job, and the columns display job properties, job state, and metric values. You can filter and sort the job list.

You can use the Navigation Pane to filter the job list by job state or by the job template that was used to submit the job. You can also use the filter fields in the views pane to filter jobs by Job name, Owner, Submit time, or Project name.

You can click the column headers to sort the list by specific properties. Customize the job list view by choosing which columns to display. For example, you can add the Queued Tasks, Running Tasks, and Finished Tasks columns to display a count of tasks in those states. In the toolbar, click View, then click Column Chooser.
