submit-job

Description

Submits an Batch job from a job definition. Parameters that are specified during SubmitJob override parameters defined in the job definition. vCPU and memory requirements that are specified in the resourceRequirements objects in the job definition are the exception. They can't be overridden this way using the memory and vcpus parameters. Rather, you must specify updates to job definition parameters in a resourceRequirements object that's included in the containerOverrides parameter.

Note

Job queues with a scheduling policy are limited to 500 active fair share identifiers at a time.

Warning

Jobs that run on Fargate resources can't be guaranteed to run for more than 14 days. This is because, after 14 days, Fargate resources might become unavailable and job might be terminated.

Options

--job-name (string)

The name of the job. It can be up to 128 letters long. The first character must be alphanumeric, can contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, hyphens (-), and underscores (_).

--job-queue (string)

The job queue where the job is submitted. You can specify either the name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the queue.

--share-identifier (string)

The share identifier for the job. If the job queue doesn't have a scheduling policy, then this parameter must not be specified. If the job queue has a scheduling policy, then this parameter must be specified.

--scheduling-priority-override (integer)

The scheduling priority for the job. This only affects jobs in job queues with a fair share policy. Jobs with a higher scheduling priority are scheduled before jobs with a lower scheduling priority. This overrides any scheduling priority in the job definition.

The minimum supported value is 0 and the maximum supported value is 9999.

--array-properties (structure)

The array properties for the submitted job, such as the size of the array. The array size can be between 2 and 10,000. If you specify array properties for a job, it becomes an array job. For more information, see Array Jobs in the Batch User Guide .

size -> (integer)

The size of the array job.

Shorthand Syntax:

size=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "size": integer
}

--depends-on (list)

A list of dependencies for the job. A job can depend upon a maximum of 20 jobs. You can specify a SEQUENTIAL type dependency without specifying a job ID for array jobs so that each child array job completes sequentially, starting at index 0. You can also specify an N_TO_N type dependency with a job ID for array jobs. In that case, each index child of this job must wait for the corresponding index child of each dependency to complete before it can begin.

(structure)

An object that represents an Batch job dependency.

jobId -> (string)

The job ID of the Batch job that's associated with this dependency.

type -> (string)

The type of the job dependency.

Shorthand Syntax:

jobId=string,type=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "jobId": "string",
    "type": "N_TO_N"|"SEQUENTIAL"
  }
  ...
]

--job-definition (string)

The job definition used by this job. This value can be one of name , name:revision , or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the job definition. If name is specified without a revision then the latest active revision is used.

--parameters (map)

Additional parameters passed to the job that replace parameter substitution placeholders that are set in the job definition. Parameters are specified as a key and value pair mapping. Parameters in a SubmitJob request override any corresponding parameter defaults from the job definition.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--container-overrides (structure)

An object with various properties that override the defaults for the job definition that specify the name of a container in the specified job definition and the overrides it should receive. You can override the default command for a container, which is specified in the job definition or the Docker image, with a command override. You can also override existing environment variables on a container or add new environment variables to it with an environment override.

vcpus -> (integer)

This parameter is deprecated, use resourceRequirements to override the vcpus parameter that's set in the job definition. It's not supported for jobs running on Fargate resources. For jobs that run on EC2 resources, it overrides the vcpus parameter set in the job definition, but doesn't override any vCPU requirement specified in the resourceRequirements structure in the job definition. To override vCPU requirements that are specified in the resourceRequirements structure in the job definition, resourceRequirements must be specified in the SubmitJob request, with type set to VCPU and value set to the new value. For more information, see Can't override job definition resource requirements in the Batch User Guide .

memory -> (integer)

This parameter is deprecated, use resourceRequirements to override the memory requirements specified in the job definition. It's not supported for jobs running on Fargate resources. For jobs that run on EC2 resources, it overrides the memory parameter set in the job definition, but doesn't override any memory requirement that's specified in the resourceRequirements structure in the job definition. To override memory requirements that are specified in the resourceRequirements structure in the job definition, resourceRequirements must be specified in the SubmitJob request, with type set to MEMORY and value set to the new value. For more information, see Can't override job definition resource requirements in the Batch User Guide .

command -> (list)

The command to send to the container that overrides the default command from the Docker image or the job definition.

(string)

instanceType -> (string)

The instance type to use for a multi-node parallel job.

Note

This parameter isn't applicable to single-node container jobs or jobs that run on Fargate resources, and shouldn't be provided.

environment -> (list)

The environment variables to send to the container. You can add new environment variables, which are added to the container at launch, or you can override the existing environment variables from the Docker image or the job definition.

Note

Environment variables cannot start with "AWS_BATCH ". This naming convention is reserved for variables that Batch sets.

(structure)

A key-value pair object.

name -> (string)

The name of the key-value pair. For environment variables, this is the name of the environment variable.

value -> (string)

The value of the key-value pair. For environment variables, this is the value of the environment variable.

resourceRequirements -> (list)

The type and amount of resources to assign to a container. This overrides the settings in the job definition. The supported resources include GPU , MEMORY , and VCPU .

(structure)

The type and amount of a resource to assign to a container. The supported resources include GPU , MEMORY , and VCPU .

value -> (string)

The quantity of the specified resource to reserve for the container. The values vary based on the type specified.

type="GPU"

The number of physical GPUs to reserve for the container. Make sure that the number of GPUs reserved for all containers in a job doesn't exceed the number of available GPUs on the compute resource that the job is launched on.

Note

GPUs aren't available for jobs that are running on Fargate resources.

type="MEMORY"

The memory hard limit (in MiB) present to the container. This parameter is supported for jobs that are running on EC2 resources. If your container attempts to exceed the memory specified, the container is terminated. This parameter maps to Memory in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory option to docker run . You must specify at least 4 MiB of memory for a job. This is required but can be specified in several places for multi-node parallel (MNP) jobs. It must be specified for each node at least once. This parameter maps to Memory in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory option to docker run .

Note

If you're trying to maximize your resource utilization by providing your jobs as much memory as possible for a particular instance type, see Memory management in the Batch User Guide .

For jobs that are running on Fargate resources, then value is the hard limit (in MiB), and must match one of the supported values and the VCPU values must be one of the values supported for that memory value.

--retry-strategy (structure)

The retry strategy to use for failed jobs from this SubmitJob operation. When a retry strategy is specified here, it overrides the retry strategy defined in the job definition.

attempts -> (integer)

The number of times to move a job to the RUNNABLE status. You can specify between 1 and 10 attempts. If the value of attempts is greater than one, the job is retried on failure the same number of attempts as the value.

evaluateOnExit -> (list)

Array of up to 5 objects that specify the conditions where jobs are retried or failed. If this parameter is specified, then the attempts parameter must also be specified. If none of the listed conditions match, then the job is retried.

(structure)

Specifies an array of up to 5 conditions to be met, and an action to take (RETRY or EXIT ) if all conditions are met. If none of the EvaluateOnExit conditions in a RetryStrategy match, then the job is retried.

onStatusReason -> (string)

Contains a glob pattern to match against the StatusReason returned for a job. The pattern can contain up to 512 characters. It can contain letters, numbers, periods (.), colons (:), and white spaces (including spaces or tabs). It can optionally end with an asterisk (*) so that only the start of the string needs to be an exact match.

onReason -> (string)

Contains a glob pattern to match against the Reason returned for a job. The pattern can contain up to 512 characters. It can contain letters, numbers, periods (.), colons (:), and white space (including spaces and tabs). It can optionally end with an asterisk (*) so that only the start of the string needs to be an exact match.

onExitCode -> (string)

Contains a glob pattern to match against the decimal representation of the ExitCode returned for a job. The pattern can be up to 512 characters long. It can contain only numbers, and can end with an asterisk (*) so that only the start of the string needs to be an exact match.

The string can contain up to 512 characters.

action -> (string)

Specifies the action to take if all of the specified conditions (onStatusReason , onReason , and onExitCode ) are met. The values aren't case sensitive.

}

--propagate-tags | --no-propagate-tags (boolean)

Specifies whether to propagate the tags from the job or job definition to the corresponding Amazon ECS task. If no value is specified, the tags aren't propagated. Tags can only be propagated to the tasks during task creation. For tags with the same name, job tags are given priority over job definitions tags. If the total number of combined tags from the job and job definition is over 50, the job is moved to the FAILED state. When specified, this overrides the tag propagation setting in the job definition.

--timeout (structure)

The timeout configuration for this SubmitJob operation. You can specify a timeout duration after which Batch terminates your jobs if they haven't finished. If a job is terminated due to a timeout, it isn't retried. The minimum value for the timeout is 60 seconds. This configuration overrides any timeout configuration specified in the job definition. For array jobs, child jobs have the same timeout configuration as the parent job. For more information, see Job Timeouts in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide .

attemptDurationSeconds -> (integer)

The job timeout time (in seconds) that's measured from the job attempt's startedAt timestamp. After this time passes, Batch terminates your jobs if they aren't finished. The minimum value for the timeout is 60 seconds.

For array jobs, the timeout applies to the child jobs, not to the parent array job.

For multi-node parallel (MNP) jobs, the timeout applies to the whole job, not to the individual nodes.

Shorthand Syntax:

attemptDurationSeconds=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "attemptDurationSeconds": integer

(structure)

Object representing any Kubernetes overrides to a job definition that's used in a SubmitJob API operation.

image -> (string)

The override of the Docker image that's used to start the container.

command -> (list)

The command to send to the container that overrides the default command from the Docker image or the job definition.

(string)

args -> (list)

The arguments to the entrypoint to send to the container that overrides the default arguments from the Docker image or the job definition. For more information, see CMD in the Dockerfile reference and Define a command an arguments for a pod in the Kubernetes documentation .

(string)

env -> (list)

The environment variables to send to the container. You can add new environment variables, which are added to the container at launch. Or, you can override the existing environment variables from the Docker image or the job definition.

Note

Environment variables cannot start with "AWS_BATCH ". This naming convention is reserved for variables that Batch sets.

(structure)

An environment variable.

name -> (string)

The name of the environment variable.

value -> (string)

The value of the environment variable.

resources -> (structure)

The type and amount of resources to assign to a container. These override the settings in the job definition. The supported resources include memory , cpu , and nvidia.com/gpu . For more information, see Resource management for pods and containers in the Kubernetes documentation .

limits -> (map)

The type and quantity of the resources to reserve for the container. The values vary based on the name that's specified. Resources can be requested using either the limits or the requests objects.

memory

The memory hard limit (in MiB) for the container, using whole integers, with a "Mi" suffix. If your container attempts to exceed the memory specified, the container is terminated. You must specify at least 4 MiB of memory for a job. memory can be specified in limits , requests , or both. If memory is specified in both places, then the value that's specified in limits must be equal to the value that's specified in requests .

Note

To maximize your resource utilization, provide your jobs with as much memory as possible for the specific instance type that you are using. To learn how, see Memory management in the Batch User Guide .

cpu

The number of CPUs that's reserved for the container. Values must be an even multiple of 0.25 . cpu can be specified in limits , requests , or both. If cpu is specified in both places, then the value that's specified in limits must be at least as large as the value that's specified in requests .

nvidia.com/gpu

The number of GPUs that's reserved for the container. Values must be a whole integer. memory can be specified in limits , requests , or both. If memory is specified in both places, then the value that's specified in limits must be equal to the value that's specified in requests .

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

requests -> (map)

The type and quantity of the resources to request for the container. The values vary based on the name that's specified. Resources can be requested by using either the limits or the requests objects.

memory

The memory hard limit (in MiB) for the container, using whole integers, with a "Mi" suffix. If your container attempts to exceed the memory specified, the container is terminated. You must specify at least 4 MiB of memory for a job. memory can be specified in limits , requests , or both. If memory is specified in both, then the value that's specified in limits must be equal to the value that's specified in requests .

Note

If you're trying to maximize your resource utilization by providing your jobs as much memory as possible for a particular instance type, see Memory management in the Batch User Guide .

cpu

The number of CPUs that are reserved for the container. Values must be an even multiple of 0.25 . cpu can be specified in limits , requests , or both. If cpu is specified in both, then the value that's specified in limits must be at least as large as the value that's specified in requests .

nvidia.com/gpu

The number of GPUs that are reserved for the container. Values must be a whole integer. nvidia.com/gpu can be specified in limits , requests , or both. If nvidia.com/gpu is specified in both, then the value that's specified in limits must be equal to the value that's specified in requests .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
