Hi Tina,

I think you could just have a qos called "override" that has no limits, or maybe just high limits. Then, just modify the job's qos to be "override" with scontrol. Based on your setup, you may also have to update the jobs account to an "override" type account with no limits.

We do this from time to time.

    Is there a way to force a job to run that is being held back for
    QOSGrpCpuLimit? This is coming from QOS that we have in place. For the
    most part it works great but every once in a while we have free nodes that
    are idle and I'd like to force the job to run.
