We are using Moab.  So that sounds like a place to start.

What scheduler are you using? If you are using Moab or Maui you want the EXACTNODE node match policy instead of the default EXACTPROC

Perhaps this question has been answered before.  I have users who want to distribute jobs equally amongst nodes.  What I am observing at the moment is that when a user submits a job with nodes=12:ppn=3, the job uses three nodes with 12 cores per node.  Is there a way to make the job use only three cores per node.  How can I prevent this or setup some kind of affinity for following the user’s job requirements?

I have looked node_pack, but I am unsure if this does what I need.  Currently node_pack is set to false.

Thanks,
