Compute Manager

Compute Manager is PBS Works’ application for web-based job submission, management and monitoring – simplifying HPC for end users.
Compute Manager is a job submission and management portal that hides the complexities of high performance computing (HPC). With Compute Manager, users gain a simple, powerful and consistent interface for submitting and monitoring jobs to remote clusters, clouds or other resources – so end users only have to concern themselves with the data and applications they wish to run, and nothing more.

Why Compute Manager?

  • Save time: Simplify job submission and management thanks to a powerful GUI with smart, simplified interfaces
  • Be more productive: Spend more time focused on work and not IT tasks - for example, monitor jobs graphically without having to download huge job files
  • Increase ROI: Consolidate access to applications and optimize license availability
  • Reduce errors and improve consistency: Embed your company's best-practice "know how" directly into Application Definitions used for job submission
“Compute Manager simply makes HPC easier – it’s a key addition to our HPC environment and really enhances the value of our PBS Works implementation.”
