[slurm-users] How to display the effective QOS of a job?

is it possible to display the effective QOS of a job?

I need to investigate some unexpected behaviour of the scheduler (at least unexpected to me at the moment). I want to limit maximum number of CPUs per user in each partition. It is my understanding from the documentation that partition QOS (set to "medium" for the "medium" partition which has MaxTRESPU=cpu=512) takes precedence of the job QOS (displayed as "normal" which has no limit). However, I'm getting ~100 array jobs of a user scheduled (with 32CPUs each) at the same time in the "medium" partition.

What would be a good starting point for investigating the issue?

Is it possible to look "inside" the scheduler state/decision making?

I'm using Slurm 20.02.0.
