>From what I'm reading in the man pages, it seems like PreempExemptTime isn't compatible with suspending jobs instead of requeue/cancelling them, no matter if at the partition or qos level.  Am I reading that correctly?  We currently give users the option of submitting to a partition that lets their job be suspended, or to one where they're requeued.  Do we have to give that up to offer a min run time on jobs (for just one partition/qos)?

Just a quick comment, here you're talking about both partitions and
QOS's with respect to preemption, I think for this you need to pick just
one of those options and only use those configs. For instance we just
use QOS's for preemption and our exempt time works in that case.

Hope this helps!

All the best,
