How to request and use an interactive queued session
Where your program requires interaction we offer an interactive queue which can be used to get a terminal session on one of the cluster nodes.
Request & Warning: You MUST log out AS SOON AS you finish using the interactive session as this uses up a slot on the cluster and so prevents other users from using the cluster.
To request a terminal session, issue the following command on jalapeno.fmrib.ox.ac.uk
qlogin -q interactive.q
There may be a delay whilst the system finds a suitable host. Once one becomes available, if this is the first time you have logged into a particular node you may be asked to accept the host key. Enter `yes` to accept this host key and then you will be presented with a terminal session.
At this point (assuming you enabled X11 tunnelling to ''jalapeno.fmrib.ox.ac.uk'') you should be able to run graphical X11 programs as well as terminal commands.
