[slurm-users] Changing node weights in partitions

Dear Ole,

Thanks for the support. I think that could help me in the following way:

1. Setting different partitions with the node groups I want to prioritize. 
2. Allowing users to submit to several partitions at the same time 
3. Through accounting, creating accounts with different priorities from one partition to another. That will allow that each job type, associated to an account, starts differently in different partitions. 
4. Once a job start in one partition, the other submitted jobs are killed and get out of SLURM. 

It’s a bit more work but gets the effect I am looking for: that different nodes prioritize different types of jobs.

Is that, specially step 4, possible!

Thanks for the help.
