[Networkit] Use of NetworKit in a Torque / PBS scheduling environment

Hi Steve,

if I get your question right, you are asking how to run NetworKit on a cluster which you can only access via a job scheduler. Keep in mind that NetworKit uses shared-memory parallelism, so you would be restricted to a single node of the cluster (unlike the MPI program you gave as an example).

If the job scheduler is similar to the one I have used, it accepts arbitrary shell commands. NetworKit is a Python module that works with any Python interpreter. So if the system has Python installed, just submit a call to a Python script. If you have to do without Python, an executable written in C++ and linked against the NetworKit core library is also an option.

Does this work for you?

I am new to NetworKit and am helping a user (who is new to both NetworKit and HPC) potentially use the platform within our University's HPC center. I can see from the examples how to use the parallelized code using ipython on a multicore machine. However, I'm not sure whether the admins at the HPC center will allow installation / use of ipython. I'm wondering if there are any examples out there where people are using NetworKit and launching jobs on a cluster using a PBS script?
> Apologies if my question isn't too clear. I don't have a lot of experience w/ intrinsically parallel code. I am slightly familiar with quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics codes that are run from a bash command within the PBS script with a line like:
