Looks like stata doesn't print anything to stdin or stderr, but does create a .log file with the same name as your .do file.


Job script:

#!/bin/bash
source /mnt/glusterfs/software/free/modules/tcl/init/bash
module load StataSE-12.1
stata -b do test

 cd /mnt/glusterfs/chekh/stata-mp-test

My test.do :

clear
sysuse auto
describe

My job.script:

#!/bin/bash
# use the current directory
#$ -cwd
# mail this address
#$ -M chekh@stanford.edu
# send mail on begin, end, suspend
#$ -m bes
# copy current env vars to job
#$ -V
stata-mp -b do test.do 

The job script uses '-V' to copy the env vars from your current session, so need to load the right module first:

[chekh@corn13.stanford.edu] /mnt/glusterfs/chekh/stata-mp-test [0] 
$ module load StataMP-12.1
[chekh@corn13.stanford.edu] /mnt/glusterfs/chekh/stata-mp-test [0] 
$ which stata-mp
/mnt/glusterfs/software/non-free/stata-mp-12/stata-mp

Test that the command works outside of grid engine:

 stata-mp -b do test.do

It produces a test.log as expected.

Submit the job:

[chekh@corn13.stanford.edu] /mnt/glusterfs/chekh/stata-mp-test [0] 
$ qsub job.script 
Your job 416828 ("job.script") has been submitted

The job is sitting there a long time because the cluster is busy and there are no immediately open slots:

$ qstat 
job-ID  prior   name       user         state submit/start at     queue                          slots ja-task-ID

Submit to the test queue instead:

 qsub -l testq=1 job.script

It runs immediately and produces the expected test.log file.

troubleshooting

We've had a report of a user having trouble with Stata v14 and they fixed it by modifying their file:

 ~/.stata14/console/stata14.rc

So double-check your Stata settings files. Probably an easy thing to do is just to delete your .stata14 directory and start fresh, or you can compare to your ~/.stata13/console/stata13.rc
