Job execution order

In HOKUSAI system, the job execution order is decided by the priority of all jobs. The priority is evaluated by the following items.

Table:  listcpu information

Evaluation order Evaluation item Overview
1 Fairshare* value of project Value to determine the priority of project
2 Fairshare* value of user within a project Value to determine the priority of users in same project
3 Job priority Priority of the user own job
4 Job submission time Execute by the submission order

Because the evaluation result with smaller “Evaluation order” take priority, the job which belongs to the project with larger “Fairshare value* of project” gets preference over the jobs which are submitted earlier.

*About “fairshare function” and “backfill function” are described in this document (A part of User’s guide).
