Fine Tuning Job Priorities Using the PBS Professional Scheduling Formula

In this video, Sam Goosen, Manager of Product Specialization at Altair presents: Fine Tuning Job Priorities Using the PBS Professional Scheduling Formula.

The PBS Professional scheduling formula will allow administrators to fine-tune the order at which job are scheduled and dispatched to the compute nodes. The administrator can construct a formula based on Python mathematical functions using built-in PBS or custom numerical values. The formula expression can also incorporate policies such as eligible_time, fairshare_percentage, job resources requests, and/or administrator criticality. The scheduling formula is a powerful method for dynamically reordering the job priorities at each scheduling cycle.”
