You can. We use:

sacctmgr show assoc where account=researchgroup format=user,share

to see current fairshare within the account, and:

                sacctmgr modify user where name=someuser account=researchgroup set fairshare=N

to modify a particular user's fairshare within the account.

Hello everyone,

We are a small research group that shares an account on the cluster and we thought we would be able to use usage reports to balance the CPUh from different users: we were wrong.

Is it possible to set up Fairshare<https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fslurm.schedmd.com%2Ffair_tree.html&data=04%7C01%7Crenfro%40tntech.edu%7C8c8bb31318a74e2a1d2508d9e3e41b23%7C66fecaf83dc04d2cb8b8eff0ddea46f0%7C1%7C0%7C637791391269451544%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C2000&sdata=xpbkBGEaR4lUIm0jU1ZSWGCFDaIrOarMlgQx6YcqRdc%3D&reserved=0> within a single Account (Project)? I am reading the documentation, but as a non-admin, it is difficult for me to know what the configuration steps for something like this would be. If someone would outline the configuration steps in this case, it would save me a great deal of time...

Kind regards,

Tomislav Maric
