Recently I submitted a message to torque user group but found that my question
is actually related to maui. Here is the problem:
With two stations (server+worker) each has 16 cores, I want to submit a job but
don't want to explicitly mention on which station.
If I use "nodes=2:ppn=4", then 4 cores on each station is devoted. That is
If I use "ncpus=18", I expect that maui put 16 processes on one station and 2 on
the other automatically. However the actual result is that my job is deferred.
Total Tasks: 1 Req TaskCount: 1 Partition: ALL Network: [NONE] Memory >=
0 Disk >= 0 Swap >= 0 Opsys: [NONE] Arch: [NONE] Features: [NONE] Dedicated
Resources Per Task: PROCS: 17 NodeCount: 1 IWD: [NONE] Executable: [NONE]
Bypass: 0 StartCount: 0 PartitionMask: [ALL] Flags: RESTARTABLE job is
deferred. Reason: NoResources (cannot create reservation for job '152'
(intital reservation attempt) ) Holds: Defer (hold reason: NoResources) PE:
17.00 StartPriority: 1 cannot select job 152 for partition DEFAULT (job hold
How can I fix that?
