        # or
        singularity run --app 1core /cvmfs/
    • as a eight core job:
      • singularity run --app 8core /cvmfs/
  • and to create a configuration profile of your liking, first create the configuration files in the current directory with something like
    • singularity exec /path/to/this/image.d --cpu 4 -mem 10 --disk 25
