[slurm-users] Automatically stop low priority jobs when submitting high priority jobs

Hi all.

Is there a scheduler option that allows low priority jobs to be immediately
paused (or even stopped) when jobs with higher priority are submitted?

Related to this question, I am also a bit confused about how "scontrol
suspend" works; my understanding is that a job that gets suspended receives
a SIGSTOP signal, and a SIGCONT signal when resumed. If that's the case, is
the user's process that needs to implement the code needed to catch those
signals and free the resources, like memory and cpu?

Thanks a lot.
