[slurm-users] Changing node weights in partitions

Dear Ole,

Thanks for your fast reply. I really appreciate that. 

I had a look at your website and googled about “weight masks” but still have some questions. 

From your example I see that the mask definition is commented out. How to define what the mask means?

If helps, I’ll put an easy example. 

Node1 have more RAM and clock freq than node2. 

Partition A should start filling node1, while partition B should start filling node2. 

Can I accomplish this behavior through weighting the nodes? With your example I’m afraid to say it’s not still clear to me how. 

Thanks a lot for your help.
