How to get High Priority for your Jobs
What you can do yourself: Run jobs at High Priority
If you’ve got a deadline coming up and you want to reduce the queue wait time for your jobs, you can run your jobs at high priority by submitting them with the –l qos=high option. This will provide a large priority boost, which will move the job to the top of the list of jobs waiting for resources.
Jobs that are run at high priority will be charged against the project’s allocation at twice the normal rate. If your job would have taken 60 node hours to complete at normal priority, it will be charged 120 node hours against your allocation when run with qos=high.
If you are doing work that requires real time Peregrine access in conjunction with other ESIF user facility laboratory resources, you may request that nodes be reserved for specific time periods.
Your project allocation will be charged for the entire time you have the nodes reserved, whether you use them or not.
To request a reservation, send an email to email@example.com.
Node reservations are no longer available to enable jobs to run at high priority to meet a project deadline.
