CPU/GPU node, job schedule

Hello, I have the following problem:

Node1: 128 CPU cores
Node2: 64 CPU Cores/4GPU

Now all CPU’s of Node2 are busy because jobs were sent that also need GPUs while almost all CPU’s on Node1 are free. Is it possible to define a QUEUE in such a way that the job uses the GPU’s of Node 2 but the CPU’s of Node1?

thanks and best wishes;

No, it is not possible.

  • QUEUE is a place holder for jobs , it does not make any decisions.
  • without using openPBS, does your applicaiton support such a usage of 2 cpus of node1 and gpus of node2 ?
