Edison queue changes in AY 2018

January 9, 2018 by Zhengji Zhao

In AY 2018, a couple of queue changes are in place for Edison.

1) A simplified submission scheme is deployed starting from January 9, 2018. Users now specify the QOS (Quality of Service) only in the job scripts instead of both the partition (-p) and the QOS (--qos=<value> previously.  SLURM scripts that specify a partition are deprecated but continue to run until February 9, 2018, after which those jobs will fail to run.

2) Edison queue has been reconfigured to have new wall time limit and the submit/run limits.  Please refer to the Edison Queues and Policy page for more detail.
