That’s a *really* old version, but https://slurm.schedmd.com/archive/slurm-15.08.13/sbatch.html indicates there’s an exclusive flag you can set.

for a smallish machine that has been having degraded performance we want to implement a policy where only one job (submitted with sbatch) is allowed to run and any others submitted after it are supposed to wait in line.

I assumed this was straightforward but I can't seem to figure it out. Can I set that up in slurm.conf or in some other way? Thank you very much for your help. BTW we are running slurm 15.08.7 if that is at all relevant.

Best wishes,
