IGWN Job Accounting¶
Accounting tags are required
All jobs submitted to IGWN computing resources are required to provide accounting information, otherwise they will be rejeced instantly.
In order to keep track of how much computing is used for IGWN data processing - both to analyse current usage, and anticipate future needs - all jobs that are submitted must provide an IGWN Accounting Tag that idenfies the analysis being performed.
IGWN Accounting Tags¶
An IGWN Accounting tag is a period-delimited string following this schema
with the following components:
<purpose>: one of
<observing run>: the lowercase observing run ID, e.g.
o3(Observing Run 3)
<group>: the lowercase common short name of the IGWN Working Group for which the work is performed, e.g.
<pipeline>: a short period-delimited ID for the pipeline being executed
Specifying accounting information¶
All jobs must include the following command when submitting jobs:
accounting_group = <accounting-tag>
accounting_group = igwn.prod.o4.calibration.online.gstlal
Additionally, if the jobs are submitted from a shared user account, e.g.
accounting_group_user must be included to indicate which human being is responsible for those jobs, e.g:
accounting_group = igwn.prod.o4.calibration.online.gstlal accounting_group_user = marie.curie
