Hi list,

either reservations are not working here, or I'm still configuring
something wrong, or I don't understand how they work.

This in on 6.2u5.

I had all slots and nodes being used, and several jobs queued.
The queued jobs were all parallel jobs, some requesting 8 slots, some
other requesting 16 slots.
Som of the jobs requesting 16 slots had reservations turned on, and
higher priority than all 8 slots jobs.

Nevertheless as I enabled a free node with 8 slots, one of the waiting 8
slots jobs started.

I expected this free node to get reserved for the higher priority 16
slots job, but his did not happen.


In the queue, s_rt and h_rt are set to 8760 hours. And default_duration
is also set to 8760 hours.
No s_rt or h_rt were passed to the 8 slots jobs.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Richard
