Beacon: I was running my program in an interactive job but it didn’t finish. I received the message: qsub: job completed. How do I request more time for interactive jobs?

Request more time for interactive jobs by providing a specific number of hours/minutes/seconds using
qsub –I –l walltime=hh:mm:ss

Note that 24 hours is the maximum that can be requested. If you need an extension, send an email to along with any job ids that need to run for more than 24 hours.
