[slurm-users] Running job is canceled when starting a new job from queue

when the requested time limit of a job runs out the job is cancelled and terminated with signal SIGTERM (15) and later on SIGKILL (9) if that should fail, the job gets the state „TIMEOUT“.
However the job 161 gets killed immediately by SIGKILL and gets the state „FAILED“. That suggest that it wasn’t due to a timeout but something external. It might have been an out-of-memory kill of the system. Did the syslog contain any clues?

> The partition is a single Node with 32 cores and 128GB memory. ther is a queue with three jobs each should use 15 cores, memory usage is not important. As planned 2 jobs are running, sharing the node as expected (job 160 and 161 in the below log) and onr is waitimg (168). After the first job is completed job 168 starts as expected. But after that the other running job 161 is terminated with exit code 9 ( Ran out of CPU time ). At the End the new started Job 168 is also terminate with exit code 9. On another node the same happens, but the new stareed job ist running as expected.
