Dear GridEngine users

I have to clarify my question:
"Is it essentially in order for advance reserve to work in a parallel
queue, to have time limits for all jobs in that queue? (GridEngine
6.1u2)"

I want to use qsub -R y -l slots=80 and set max_reservation for the
scheduler, eg prevent smaller jobs from starting until the reserved job
can start. Does this work if there are no time limits on any jobs, of
course back filling won't work then. Also what should be set for
max_reservation? Should a stop or start time be given to the 80 slots
job?

Thanks

Henk
