What is a HPC Job? #

In the arena of HPC, we talk a lot about jobs, these are simply commands we wish to run and requests for resources (e.g. compute time, disk space, memory amount, software environments etc.). HPC jobs are generally time consuming and resource intensive run non-interactively.

Once jobs are complete, you can inspect their output.
