[gridengine users] Doubts regarding the h_vmem allocation while submitting the job in parallel environment

Hi Sudha,

mem_free and h_vmem are standard consumable resources[1] so they scale by
slot. If you have a five-slot job that requests 1GB of address space (-l
h_vmem=1G) then each slot will get 1GB of allowed address space, for 5GB

[1] You can check the consumable type with "qconf -sc" and look in the
consumable column. YES means requests scale by slot request, JOB means it
gets assigned to the entire job, and HOST to each node the job runs on.
