Basic FAQ


Q. How can I get information on how many CPU hours are used and left on my account?
A. For simple summary you can use cost command, if you are looking for details you can use 'gstatement' command.

cost -p <username> --project=projectname  , eg, cost -p anilth --project=is9999k

gstatement --hours -- summarize -p <projectname> -s YYYY-MM-DD -e YYYY-MM-DD

or simply use gstatement -u <username>

For more option see

gsatement --help

You can also use command mybalance in gardar

mybalance -h will give your balance in hours

Q. How do I change my password on gardar ?

Please note that you must log in to gardar-adm to change the password, and that the password will be pushed out to the other nodes within one hour. Password can be changed with the same command of UNIX passwd command in login node
