I am running NX nastran (10) on a windows plaform and seeking confirmation that the 'after' command is avaialble (on such platform). I need/would like to queue jobs but my test was unsuccesful
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks JimB. I was reading the QRG. So is there anyway of queuing job in Windows? does one need a 1/3 party tool?
Just create a .bat file of the command lines to launch each job, i.e.:
set NXN_EXE="D:\NXN11\bin\nastran.exe" set NXN_MEM=6GB set NXN_SMP=2 set NXN_ARGS=mem=%NXN_MEM% smp=%NXN_SMP% %NXN_EXE% run1.dat %NXN_ARGS% %NXN_EXE% run2.dat %NXN_ARGS% %NXN_EXE% run3.dat %NXN_ARGS% %NXN_EXE% run4.dat %NXN_ARGS%
The native behavior of the Windows batch file execution is to wait for each line to complete before processing the next line, so the 4 jobs shown above would be run sequentially, not concurrently.
