Hi Slurm experts,
  I'm new to SLURM and could really use some help getting preemption working.

The limiting factor in our cluster is licenses and I want to have high and low priority jobs where submitting a high priority job will preempt (suspend) a low priority job if all the licenses are already in use.
Is this possible with SLURM currently?
If so can someone provide example configuration settings?

If it isn't currently possible, could this be a feature included in the current cons_tres work that is going on?
I've read through a bunch of the documentation and tried to do my due diligence but haven't found a definitive answer.
