Specify job priority


Job priority is specified at submission using bsub and modified after submission using bmod. Jobs submitted without a priority are assigned the default priority of MAX_USER_PRIORITY/2.
bsub -sp prioritybmod [-sp priority | -spn] job_ID

LSF and queue administrators can specify priorities beyond MAX_USER_PRIORITY for jobs they own.
