Create a batch script and submit it with the
sbatch command to run TAU.
- The script must load the TAU module.
- You must use the -C PERF flag on the
sbatchcommand when you submit a TAU job to enable profiling.
See more about setting up batch scripts and the sbatch command in the Running Jobs section of the Bridges User Guide.
