running optimization on cluster

I have one question regarding running the optimization for my simulation and I am wondering if there is a command line for running the optimization through the cluster and on the background and not on my own laptop. I appreciate if you could help me with that.

    Are you trying to use the built in particle swarm optimization without using the Lumerical graphical interface (GUI)? If so, the answer is No. It's the GUI that analyzes the simulation results and determines the simulation parameters for the next generation of the optimization.

    That said, there's no need for your laptop to be involved. In principle, you can run the GUI on one of the nodes of the cluster.
