Is there a way for Slurm to detect when a user quota has been exceeded? We
use XFS and when users are over the quota they will get a "Disk quota
exceeded" message, e.g., when trying to scp or create a new file. However
if they are not aware of this and try using a sbatch file, they don't
receive any notification and the Slurm logs (which they don't have access
to) simply say this:
