Submit backfill jobs according to available slots


  1. Use bslots to display job slots available for backfill jobs.
  2. Submit a job to a backfill queue. Specify a runtime limit and the number of processors required that are within the availability shown by bslots.


Submitting a job according to the backfill slot availability shown by bslots does not guarantee that the job is backfilled successfully. The slots may not be available by the time job is actually scheduled, or the job cannot be dispatched because other resource requirements are not satisfied.
