Hi Lisa,

Im actually referring to the ability to create a reservation that includes a gpu resource. It doesn't seem to be possible, which seems strange. This would be very helpful for us to have a floating gpu reservation.

    I am a newbie at the Slurm setup but if by reservable you also mean a consumable resource I am able to request gpus and I have Slurm 20.02.1 and cuda 10.2.  I just set this up within the last month.

    Hi All,

    Can anyone confirm that GPU is still not a reservable resource? It doesn't seem to be possible still in 19.05.6. I haven't tried 20.02 series.

        This looks like the bug that was referred to previously.

        Although looking at the manual page for scontrol in the current master it only says:

                      Comma-separated list of TRES required for the reservation. Current
                      supported TRES types with reservations are: CPU, Node, License and

        But it's early days yet for that release..

        All the best,
