When you send ALICE staff an email or submit a request through our ticketing system, it’s important to provide the detailed information that will help us understand your problem and find the right solutions. This will save you time.

    • Slurm output or error files
    • Screenshots
    • Portions of your code, for example, any libraries you install or import

Include Observations about Job Runs

Finally, please tell us if there are inconsistencies, such as:
