Specifying Filesystems in Cobalt

A feature has been added to Cobalt that allows users to specify which filesystems they intend to use to avoid having to resubmit jobs in the event that a filesystem is unavailable. Note: It is important to specify the filesystem(s) or the job will be tagged as requesting all filesystems. This may cause the job to be held unnecessarily if a filesystem becomes unavailable. Documentation on how to specify the filesystems that your job is using may be found at https://www.alcf.anl.gov/support-center/theta/running-jobs-and-submission-scripts#qsub_filesystems. Please contact support@alcf.anl.gov if you have questions about this feature.
