IANVS: Higher quality of service for test jobs

Verfasst von

Dear IANVS users,

When you are still testing out your submit scripts, having to wait for a long time only to find your job has quit with an error can be very frustrating. In order to help with this, we have set up a new Quality of Service (QOS) category for jobs, called test. The test QOS is intended to be used for high-priority, high-turnaround jobs that are small, short-lived, and don’t use a lot of resources. When you assign the test QOS to your job, it will run with a much higher priority than usual, ensuring that it will run to completion much faster than a normal job.

You can assign the test QOS to your job by adding the following line to your submit script:#SBATCH --qos=test

To prevent abuse and make sure that every user has a good experience with this new facility, we have put tight constraints on the resources that can be used within the test QOS. Also, note that running a job with the test QOS is about ten times as ‚expensive‘ as running it with the default QOS. It is therefore in your own interest to keep test jobs as small and short as possible, so you don’t affect your Fairshare factor negatively.

As always, please contact us if you have any questions: via e-mail or phone, (0345) 55-21864 or (0345) 55-21868.

Best regards,
