GPU as a resource type in HPC-Server

    Question

  • Is there a way to choose GPU device as a resource type when you submit job?
    Our cluster has GPUs for GPGPU, but the number of cores per node is larger than the number of GPUs. I want to achieve that if all GPUs are in use (but not all cores) no further GPU jobs are assigned to this node (each GPU is an exclusive resource).

  • Hi

    No, the scheduler is not aware of GPU´s

    What you can do is, if you have two GPUs and TWO CPUS on a Node you can set the Default Rescource selection on the Job Template to Socket.. Which will limit the number of jobs running on a server to Two.
