[slurm-users] Need to calculate total runtime/walltime for one year

Unless I’m misreading it, you have a wall time limit of 2 days, and jobs that use up to 32 CPUs. So a total CPU time of up to 64 CPU-days would be possible for a single job.

So if you want total wall time for jobs instead of CPU time, then you’ll want to use the Elapsed attribute, not CPUTime.

I want to calculate the total walltime or runtime for all jobs submitted by each user in a year. I am using the syntax as below and it is also generating some output.

We have walltime set for queues (main & main_new) as 48hrs only but the below is giving me hours ranging from 15hrs to 56 hours of even more. I am missing anything from logical/analytical point of view or the syntax is not correct with respect to the desired information ? Many thanks for any suggestion.
