Running a tool on a CLC Server

When you launch an analysis from a Workbench that is logged into a CLC Server, you are offered the choice of where the analysis should be run (figure 12.6).

Figure 12.6: When logged into the CLC Server, you can select where a job should be run.

You can check the Remember setting and skip this step option if you wish to always use the selected option when submitting analyses. If you select this option but later change your mind, just start up an analysis and click on the Previous button to open these options again.

Most wizard steps for launching a job on a CLC Workbench or on a CLC Server are the same. There are two minor differences when launching jobs to run on a CLC Server: results are always saved, and a log of the job is always created and saved alongside the results.

Data access: When you run a job on a CLC Server, you will generally only be able to select data from and save results to areas known to the CLC Server. With default server settings, you will not be able to upload data from your local system. Your server administrator can enabled this if they wish. See

Disconnecting from the CLC Server: Once the job has been submitted, you can disconnect from the CLC Server if you wish, or close the CLC Workbench entirely. Exception: If you are importing data from the local file system, you must wait until the data has been imported before disconnecting. A notification about server jobs that finished is presented the next time you log in to the CLC Server. See Processes tab and Status bar.
