Edison run limit increase and discount rate increase for large jobs

February 24, 2014

To boost Edison usage, we have made some changes to the Edison queues:

  1. The run limit of certain queues has been increased. The run limit for reg_1hour went from 8 to 16; for reg_small from 16 to 24; for reg_med from 4 to 8.
  2. A new reg_short queue was created with a 6 hour wall limit and a 16 job run limit.
  3. The "big job discount" has been increased from 25% to 40% and will be applied retroactively to all jobs run since January 14 in the reg_med, reg_big and reg_xbig queues.
