[slurm-users] Best practice: How much node memory to specify in slurm.conf?

I tend to run a test program on an otherwise idle node, allocating (and
actually using!) more and more memory, and then see when it starts
swapping.  I typically end up with between 1 and 1.5 GiB less than what
"free" reports as the total memory.
