In this paper, we investigate the differences and similarities in user job submission behavior in High Performance Computing (HPC) and High Throughput Computing (HTC). We consider job submission behavior in terms of parallel batch-wise submissions, as well as delays and pauses in job submission. Our findings show that modeling user-based HTC job submission behavior requires knowledge of the underlying bags of tasks, which is often unavailable. Furthermore, we find evidence that subsequent job submission behavior is not influenced by the different complexities and requirements of HPC and HTC jobs.
