Does anyone know how is maxvmem exactly calculated ?

I?m monitoring a very large job, and it seems that maxvmem is a few gig larger than the actual memory peak than the job had:

usage    1:                 cpu=1:00:09:50, mem=5211650.50705 GBs, io=0.00000, vmem=81.416G, maxvmem=93.200G

The job actually never went over 84g memory.

Am I misinterpreting maxvmem to begin with? I understand that the value is the actual memory peak that the job had.

Thanks in advance,
