Hello,

we are running Torque-2.3.6 and Maui-3.2.6p21 at our cluster. Sometimes 
happens following:

The job requesting more worker nodes (for example nodes=8:ppn=2) is 
queued and starts at average in one hour even the requested resources 
are available. Exactly there are no fully free worker nodes available 
but there is a sufficient amount of partially free worker nodes.
There is no clear reason in the output of checkjob.

 From checkjob:
checking job 8037

State: Idle
Creds: user:black group:users class:batch qos:DEFAULT
WallTime: 00:00:00 of 41:16:00:00

PE: 16.00 StartPriority: 31
cannot select job 8037 for partition DEFAULT (startdate in '00:00:01')


 From Maui configuration:

BACKFILLPOLICY   FIRSTFIT
RESERVATIONPOLICY   CURRENTHIGHEST
NODEALLOCATIONPOLICY   CPULOAD
ENABLEMULTIREQJOBS   TRUE
JOBNODEMATCHPOLICY   EXACTNODE


 From tracejob:
05/18/2009 15:45:34 S enqueuing into batch, state 1 hop 1
05/18/2009 *15:45:34* S Job Queued at request ...
05/18/2009 15:45:34 A queue=batch
05/18/2009 16:56:25 S Job Modified at request ...
05/18/2009 *16:56:25* S Job Run at request ...
05/18/2009 16:56:25 S Job Modified at request ...


Can anybody explain this strange behaviour?
What does the expresion "cannot select job 8037 for partition DEFAULT" 
without any further reason mean?


Thank you.

Best regards

Jana Uhlirova
