slurm has a way of giving larger jobs more priority. is it possible to do
the reverse?

i.e., is there a way to configure priority to give smaller jobs (use less
resources) higher priority than bigger ones?



resources: can be a weighted combination depending on system resources

w1*core + w2*memory + w3*time + w4*gpu

where core, memory, time, gpu are those requested by the job, and w1-4 are
determined by system resources/group allocations.
