By specifying the following parameters in a gaussian file


and a slurm script as below

#SBATCH --output=test.out
#SBATCH --job-name=gaus-test
#SBATCH --nodelist=compute-0-1
#SBATCH --ntasks=1
#SBATCH --cpus-per-task=2
g09 test.gjf

the run terminates with the following error in the log file

galloc:  could not allocate memory.: Cannot allocate memory

However, by running that gaussian job file directly on the
compute-0-1, there isn't any problem. In fact compute-0-1 has 8GB of

Any idea about that?
