Disable vmem option

Hi all,

Can I disable the option vmem on OpenPBS?


Could you please let us know why ? and what is the purpose of this ?
Are you planning to disable the swap on the compute nodes ?


That’s because I’m dealing with a job priority problem, some users are still using vmem instead of using mem. And I was planning to disable the vmem option only in PBS.


you could write a queuejob hook that will reject jobs requesting vmem in their qsub .

Thank you very much adarsh.
