The job archive is a file format used by Qube!'s tools both to store template information and to record a job's initial state. The Supervisor automatically creates an archive file when the job is submitted. However users are also allowed to create these files for use as templates for submitting similar jobs repeatedly. Some of the data recorded in the template archive files can then be overridden at submission time. The contents of a binary job archive file can be viewed with the standard Qube! tools while files in the XML format can be examined in any standard text editor.
The command is archived to a file:
% qbsub –export file.qja sleep 10
