How do I submit an interactive job to the Odyssey queue SLURM?

Step 1: Login to Odyssey through your Terminal window. Please see here for login instructions.

Step 2: Run an interactive job by typing: srun -p interact --pty MYPROGRAM

This will open up an interactive run for you to use.  If you want a bash prompt for 1 hour, type: srun --pty --mem 500 -p interact -t 0-1:00 /bin/bash

If you need X11 forwarding type include --x11=first in the middle of your srun command. This will initiate an X11 tunnel to the first node on your list.  –-x11 has additional options of batch, first, last, and all.
