BEAR Apps Version




The listed architectures consist of two part: OS-CPU.

  • BlueBEAR: The OS used on BlueBEAR is represented by EL and there are several different processor (CPU) types available on BlueBEAR. More information about the processor types on BlueBEAR is available on the BlueBEAR Job Submission page.
  • BEAR and CaStLeS Cloud VMs: These VMs can have one of two OSes. Those with access to a BEAR Cloud or CaStLeS VM should check that the listed architectures for an application include the OS of VM being used. The VMs, irrespective of OS, will use the haswell CPU type.

Common Problems

Stata not executing final command

If you find that Stata is not executing the final command in your .do file, then try adding a newline at the end of the file.

I/O error writing .dta file

When running a Stata job in BlueBEAR you may get this error:

I/O error writing .dta file - Usually such I/O errors are caused by the disk or file system being full.

In that case the following should fix it, added before you execute stata-mp (or stata, or stata-se):

export STATATMP="/scratch/${SLURM_JOBID}"; mkdir ${STATATMP}

This tells stata to write its temporary files into a new, job-specific folder in the /scratch filestore - instead of into /tmp
