Here's an example as batch file that you can use to run Stata
#!/bin/bash #SBATCH --ntasks=1 #SBATCH --partition=general module purge module load stata/15-SE stata-se -b MyJob.do
This will run the Stata commands that you've placed in the file MyJob.do.
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
- You must be on campus, or use the VPN, to run the Stata GUI. You can learn more about the VPN here
- If you are using Windows, then you must connect using X2Go software
- 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 YOUR-NETID@login1.storrs.hpc.uconn.edu fisbatch
You will get a console like this.
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:
Once Stata starts, you should see a window like this:
When are done with Xstata, please exit the GUI and exit the X2Go, to free up resources for others.
