Using all nodes but not all the cpus

Hi All,

Let’s say I have five slave nodes each with 4cores(So total there are 20 cores), I am wondering if it is possible to request all the nodes but 19 cores in total while one core would stay idle?


Please try this
qsub -l select=1:ncpus=4+1:ncpus=4+1:ncpus=4+1:ncpus=4+1:ncpus=3 -- /bin/sleep 1000
