Cluster UI

Run commands or an interactive session in the cluster.


Usage: cui [options] [command]

Submit a UI job and connect to it when it begins to run. If <command> is
specified, it is executed on the remote machine. Otherwise, the current shell
($SHELL) is executed.

To connect a UI job that's already running, pass its ClusterId to the '-i'
option. Use the special ID 'any' to automatically select a suitable running job.

By default, cui will use glexec to switch to the grid user after connecting to
the UI job; pass the '-g' option to disable glexec.

After the connection is terminated, the UI job's temporary directory including
its submit file, log file and any files transferred back from the remote
machine will be removed. To prevent cleanup, pass the '-P' option; since no
temporary directory is created when connecting to an existing job with '-i',
cleanup does not occur in that case, either.
