varying resource requests over the runtime of the job are not available. So any fixed resource request won't help per se.

> Another solution instead of reducing the number of slots would be to put an interval of time between each job submission to avoid they reach the maximum at the same time. Could you tell me how to set this option properly? I tried to look in the scheduler but I did not find the correct parameters.

But you can implement to request the amount of memory you need after the initial startup of the job by using virtual_free as this is not enforced (otherwise the job would be killed during its first phase where it needs more):


Having done so, the scheduler needs to know, that it needs more during the startup of a job. This can be done by a "load_adjustment" in the scheduler configuration (and putting a really hight value there) `qconf -msconf` and a suitable setting for its decrement in "load_adjustment_decay_time".
