I am playing with subordinate queues. I have defined "owner" queue and "free" queue.
The owner queue has:
# qconf -sq owner | grep subordinate
If I submit a 1-core job to owner queue, OGE suspends 1 core (slot) job from free queue. If I submit another 1 core job to owner queue, OGE suspend another 1 core job from free queue and so on. All is well.
Now, if I submit a parallel job that uses 8 cores, OGE will still suspend 1 core job and not 8 1-core jobs, so the node is now over subscribed. What is the trick in telling OGE to suspend 8 slots if an 8 slot job is submitted?
