Yeah, you are right. I wonder, whether it could be improved: considering the CPU time is only useful, when you allow oversubscription of nodes with enabled reprioritization (reprioritize and reprioritize_interval setting). Hence the actual usage can be adjusted by changing the nice value. When slots=core without reprioritization is set up, the allocated slot runtime should be used instead. Does it sound feasible?
