Submitting multiple jobs

I’m fairly new to unix based systems and the whole language, so bare with me.

I’m trying to submit a bunch of jobs at once (like 10). For similar tasks this line worked for me:

find . -type f -name ‘*.’ -print0 | xargs -0 ‘command’

so i tried this:

find . -type f -name ‘*.job’ -print0 | xargs -0 qsub

Is there an intended way to group submissions? I’ve checked the user manual and couldn’t find a solution to my problem.

Thank you for your time.

Is this what you are looking for?

find . -type f -name '*.job' -print | xargs -I% qsub %

Example below

[scott@pbsclient oss]$ ls
one.job  three.job  two.job
[scott@pbsclient oss]$ find . -type f -name '*.job' -print
[scott@pbsclient oss]$ find . -type f -name '*.job' -print | xargs -I% qsub %
[scott@pbsclient oss]$ qstat
Job id            Name             User              Time Use S Queue
----------------  ---------------- ----------------  -------- - -----
6714.pbs          one.job          scott                    0 Q workq           
6715.pbs          two.job          scott                    0 Q workq           
6716.pbs          three.job        scott                    0 Q workq           
[scott@pbsclient oss]$ qstat -f | grep -e "^[[:alnum:]]" -e Submit_arguments
Job Id: 6714.pbs
    Submit_arguments = ./one.job
Job Id: 6715.pbs
    Submit_arguments = ./two.job
Job Id: 6716.pbs
    Submit_arguments = ./three.job
