Reserve a static shared resource

About this task

Use resource reservation to prevent over-committing static shared resources when scheduling.


To indicate that a shared resource is to be reserved while a job is running, specify the resource name in the rusage section of the resource requirement string.


You configured licenses for the Verilog application as a resource called verilog_lic. To submit a job to run on a host when there is a license available:

bsub -R "select[defined(verilog_lic)] rusage[verilog_lic=1]" myjob

If the job can be placed, the license it uses are reserved until the job completes.
