Hi, I have a pending job with a time limit of 2 days, it is assigned by default to "normal" qos that has a limit of 1 day.
When I realize that it is in PENDING Reason=QOSMaxWallDurationPerJobLimit, i move it to lowprio qos: $] scontrol update job 2767745 qos=lowprio Then, I check the wall duration limit and it switched to 1-00:00:00 days. I wanted to mantain the original 2 days since I moved from a 1-day qos to a 7-day qos. [fmoll@head1 submission-scripts]$ sacctmgr show qos -pn normal|100|00:00:00||cluster|||1.000000||||||||||1-00:00:00||||| lowprio|10|00:00:00||cluster|||1.000000||||||||||7-00:00:00||||| highprio|1000|00:00:00||cluster|||1.000000||||||||||1-00:00:00||||| machine|10000|00:00:00||cluster|||1.000000||||||||||||||| If I switch a 8 days job from lowprio to normal, it is switched to 1 day. If I launch a 8 days job to "machine" qos and move it to lowprio, wallclock is switched to 7 days. In my opinion, timelimit should not be changed when updating qos job unless explicitly told. Is it a correct behaviour in slurm 15.08.10? -- Felip Moll Marquès Computer Science Engineer E-Mail - lip...@gmail.com WebPage - http://lipix.ciutadella.es
