Frontera queue changes

Posted by Tim Cockerill on Mar 31, 2021 1:21:16 PM

To improve the throughput of Frontera jobs, a new queue named small has been created specifically for one and two node jobs.  Jobs of one or two nodes that will run for up to 48 hours should be submitted to the small  queue.  The normal  queue now has a lower limit of 3 nodes for all jobs.  This should improve the turnaround time for jobs in the normal queue and small jobs in the small  queue.The change to the normal  queue will go into effect after the next maintenance on 6April 2021.  Users may submit to the small  queue now.
