slurm partition limit for big memory job

by Martin Forde   Last Updated March 14, 2019 21:00 PM

I have two pools of nodes, one for default compute and the other for big memory applications.

default <- nodes[1-40]
bigmem <- mem[1-8]

How do I set up a partition limit on the default, so that if a job requests more than say 30G of memory that it's diverted to big_mem partition?

$ srun -N1 -n1 --mem=50G      # job is rejected from default and queued to bigmem
$ srun -N1 -n1                # job is accepted to default because default mem allocation is 1GB per task.
