Use resource reservation

Queue-level resource reservation

At the queue level, resource reservation allows you to specify the amount of resources to reserve for jobs in the queue. It also serves as the upper limits of resource reservation if a user also specifies it when submitting a job.

Queue-level resource reservation and pending reasons

The use of RES_REQ affects the pending reasons as displayed by bjobs. If RES_REQ is specified in the queue and the loadSched thresholds are not specified, then the pending reasons for each individual load index will not be displayed.
