To submit jobs to an owned partition, use the SLURM `--partition` option. Jobs
can either be submitted *only* to an owned partition, or to *both* the owned
partition and the general access queue. For example, assuming a partition
named `mypartition`:
{{% panel theme="info" header="Submit only to an owned partition" %}}
{{< highlight bash >}}
#SBATCH --partition=mypartition
{{< /highlight >}}
{{% /panel %}}
Submitting solely to an owned partition means jobs will start immediately until
the resources on the partition are full, then queue until prior jobs finish and
resources become available.
{{% panel theme="info" header="Submit to both an owned partition and general queue" %}}
{{< highlight bash >}}
#SBATCH --partition=mypartition,batch
{{< /highlight >}}
{{% /panel %}}
Submitting to both an owned partition and `batch` means jobs will run on both the owned
partition and the general batch queue. Jobs will start immediately until the resources
on the partition are full, then queue. Pending jobs will then start either on the owned partition
or in the general queue, wherever resources become available first
(taking into account FairShare). Unless there are specific reasons to limit jobs
to owned resources, this method is recommended to maximize job throughput.
