Running Stata as batch Job

Here's an example as batch file that you can use to run Stata

 #SBATCH --ntasks=1
 #SBATCH --partition=general

 module purge
 module load stata/15-SE

 stata-se -b

This will run the Stata commands that you've placed in the file

Running Stata via its interactive GUI


You can run Stata as a GUI, so that Stata runs on the HPC cluster, but it will display its GUI Window on your local desktop/laptop. You will need to meet these conditions

  1. You must be on campus, or use the VPN, to run the Stata GUI. You can learn more about the VPN here
  2. If you are using Windows, then you must connect using X2Go software
  3. If you are using Linux or Mac, you can also use X2Go, or try using the following ssh command line:
    ssh -o requesttty=yes -CX fisbatch

You will get a console like this.

X2Go opens this window

Once you get a prompt so that you can enter commands, enter the following

  module purge
  module load stata/15-SE
  xstata-se &

Here's is what it will look like:

Commands to start XStata

Once Stata starts, you should see a window like this:

Xstata startup window

When are done with Xstata, please exit the GUI and exit the X2Go, to free up resources for others.
