I have some nodes with 2 different properties, example:
When I request nodes in this following fashion
qsub -l nodes=2:fast+2:slow
I observe the $PBS_NODEFILE does not strictly have the nodes listed in the order that was requested but its random.
For instance, a strict ordering of the nodes in the order of request would lead to $PBS_NODEFILE with content
But I observed something like
The question is, is it possible to influence a strict ordering of nodes according to the request?
If not, could someone please show me some pointers to the torque code where this can be influenced?
