Resources are limited with cgroups in SLURM. Check the documentation:


You simply specify ProctrackType=proctrack/cgroup or/and TaskPlugin=task/cgroup in slurm.conf and then configure which resources are limited and how much in the cgroup.conf:

Good day fellow Slurm users.

Coming from a PBSpro system which has the following variables to limit a job to the resources it requested:

$enforce mem
$enforce cpuaverage
$enforce cpuburst

If a user exceeded any of the above limits their job would be terminated.

Looking through the slurm.conf man page I only see configuration variables to limit memory utilization:

OverMemoryKill and MemLimitEnforce.

What are the analogous variables to use for other resources that may be exceeded by a job?
