Input

You can use any text editor to make the appropriate input files for ImageMagick.

How to Run ImageMagick in Batch

Each ImageMagick program is invoked by a separate command. To run an ImageMagick program, either enter the command that invokes it or use it in a script file. Not all ImageMagick commands are available in batch (e.g., display and import do not run in batch).

How to Run ImageMagick from the Cluster Login Node using the Queue Scripts

The easiest way to run ImageMagick in batch from the login node is to use the queue scripts. See Running a Batch Job for a discussion of the queue scripts and how they are used.

Use the job.q script to create a job scheduler command file for your script that contains an ImageMagick command and options.

How to Run ImageMagick from the Cluster Login Node Using UGE Commands

See Running a Batch Job for guidelines to follow to create the required UGE command file. Alternatively, you could create an UGE command file with the job.q script. After saving the command file, you can modify it if necessary. See Commonly-Used UGE Commands for a list of the most commonly used UGE commands.

How to Run ImageMagick Interactively from the Cluster Login Node

To run ImageMagick interactively you must connect to the cluster login node with X11 forwarding enabled. Then use qrsh to obtain an interactive compute node. Then enter:

image-magick-command [options}

where image-magick-command is one of the ImageMagick programs.

Each ImageMagick program is invoked by a separate command. To run an ImageMagick program, either enter the command that invokes it at the command line shell prompt, or use it in a script file and execute your script.
