Run jobs in Cheyenne’s economy queue to use allocations most efficiently

October 12, 2017

Cheyenne’s economy queue has been enabled for a limited time to encourage greater use of the system and to make users’ core-hour allocations go farther. Jobs using the economy queue are charged a discounted rate of 30% compared to the regular queue.

Jobs submitted to the regular and economy queues have the same priority due to the current PBS Pro configuration, so all are encouraged to use the economy queue while it is available. Its availability will be re-evaluated as Cheyenne’s usage increases.

Check your Systems Accounting Manager (SAM )reports regularly to keep an eye on core-hours charges.
