  • Setting job priorities
Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

If you have several jobs in the queue, and would like certain of them to be prioritized over others, you can set the relative priority of a job by submitting it with:

$ qsub -p priority job-script


  • priority is a number between -1024 and +1023. A higher number means higher priority. The default priority is 0. 

    This only affects the priority of a job relative to other jobs owned by you - it does not affect the priority of your job compared to any job belonging to a different user.

  • job-script is the name of your job script

You can also pass -p as a PBS directive within your job script:

#PBS -p priority
