I have a queue setup with a handful of nodes and I’m trying to set it up in a way where one user can request and execute on a single node. I’ve been able to do this with these queue attributes:
set queue batch resources_max.nodect = 1
set queue batch resources_max.nodes = 1
This seems to work if I request nodes with “-l nodes”. If I select 1, the job goes through, if I select 2, it errors out. However, I’ve noticed that by running “-l select=2”, two nodes are allocated. Is this expected behavior? Any way to limit the “select” attribute?
