[slurm-users] how to allocate high priority to low cpu and memory jobs

Since there's only 9 factors to assign priority weights to, one way around this might be to set up separate partitions for high memory and low memory jobs (with a max memory allowed for the low memory partition), and then use partition weights to separate those jobs out.

Dear all,

how can I reverse the priority, so that jobs with high cpu and memory
have a low priority?

The Priority/Multifactor plugin it is possible to calculate high
priority for high cpu and memory jobs.

With PriorityFavorSmall, jobs with a lower cpu number have a high
priority, but this only works for cpu, not memory.
