You can submit a Gaussian computation for the input file in batch mode with the following command.

sbatch [Slurm options] --tmp=500 --wrap="g09 test000"

The results of the simulation will be stored in a file called test000.log. Here you need to replace [Slurm options] with Slurm parameters for the resource requirements of the job. Please find a documentation about the parameters of sbatch on the wiki page about the batch system. Please note that you need to request scratch space in any case. The batch system automatically sets


which forces Gaussian to write temporary file during the calculation into the local scratch of the compute node. Using a local scratch directory offers some significant advantages, as for instance there is no risk to fill up your home directory and you get a very high I/O performance.
