Also keep in mind that the default FairTree Algorithm changes in 19.05 to FAIR_TREE. You’d have to set the PriorityFlag to NO_FAIR_TREE in order to revert to the classic algorithm, otherwise your FairShare calculations will be quite different even though the raw usage data remains the same.

Kind regards,

My question is: during the process, I need to upgrade “slurmdbd”. All the fairshare tree (with rawusage, effectvusage, fairshare, etc), will be kept in the new version after upgrading?
