To run short jobs for testing and development work, a job can specify a different quality of service (QoS). The short QoS increases a jobs priority so it will run as soon as possible.

SLURM Specification
titleLimits per user for 'short' QoS
  • 6 hour job run time
  • 1 job of 16 CPUs or fewer
  • No more than 256 CPUs in use for short jobs from all users
