Desktop Mode

If you connect using X11 for remote display, you can run xstata-se (or xstata-mp) to start the desktop (graphical) version of the application:

$ ssh -Y sunetid@rice.stanford.edu
rice $ module load stata-se
rice $ xstata-se &

Non-interactive jobs

You can also run Stata non-interactively using the do command, producing a .log file containing results:

$ module load stata-se
$ cat test.do
sysuse auto
describe
$ stata -b do test.do
$ cat test.log

Batch jobs

Or, submit a batch job to run on one of the compute nodes:

$ module load stata-se
$ sbatch --wrap='stata -b do test.do'

You can also write and submit a traditional Slurm job script:

$ cat test.sh
#!/bin/bash
module load stata-se
stata-se -b do test.do
$ sbatch test.sh
$ ls test.log
test.log
