SLURM Partition Limits

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Jobs can run on specific HiPerGator servers or nodes based on hardware requirements. Different sets of hardware configurations are presented as SLURM partitions. See also: Available Node Features

Time Limits

Partitions have individual time limits. Example of time limit configuration:

  1. SBATCH --time=4-00:00:00 # Walltime in hh:mm:ss or d-hh:mm:ss

Interactive Work

Partitions: hpg-dev, gpu, hpg-ai

  • Default time limit if not specified (Default): 10 min
  • hpg-dev Maximum: 12 hours
  • gpu
    • Maximum: 12 hours for srun .... --pty bash -i sessions
    • Maximum: 72 hours for Jupyter sessions in Open OnDemand.
  • hpg-ai
    • Maximum: 12 hours for srun .... --pty bash -i sessions


  • JupyterHub: Sessions are preset with individual limits shown in the menu
  • JupyterLab in Open OnDemand Maximum: 72 hours for the GPU partition, other partitions follow standard partition limits

GPU/HPG-AI Partitions

  • Default: 10 min
  • Maximum: 14 days

Note: There is no burst QOS for the gpu partitions.

Compute Partitions

hpg-default, hpg2-compute, bigmem

Both the hpg-default and the hpg2-compute partitions are selected by default if no partition is specified for a job.

Investment QOS
