How do I submit to COSMA8?

You must be part of a DiRAC project that has an allocation on COSMA8, and be part of the cosma8 group (use the id command to see this). If you are not part of the cosma8 group, but should be, please contact cosma-support. To submit a job script, you need to use -p cosma8.
