Description

Stores the priority level options that can be assigned to an activity. This table is for reference only, the  job priority values are actually set in HPC job priority settings.

By default, jobs will be assigned “Normal Priority” (HPCJobPriorityID = 2000) and will be initiated in the order in which they are submitted if the following conditions are met:

  • Sufficient capacity is available
  • There are no other “High Priority” jobs waiting
  • The job has been scheduled to run “immediately” – or –
  • The date and time, if the job is scheduled, is after the user-selected run date and time if it was scheduled to run in the future

Jobs with “Top Priority” (HPCJobPriorityID = 4000) will be initiated if and when:

  • Sufficient capacity is available
  • There are no other “Top Priority” jobs waiting
  • The job has been scheduled to run “immediately” – or –
  • The date and time, if the job is scheduled, is after the user-selected run date and time if it was scheduled to run in the future

Jobs with “High Priority” (HPCJobPriorityID = 3000) will be immediately initiated if and when:

  • Sufficient capacity is available
  • There are no other “High Priority” jobs that were previously submitted and waiting
  • The job has been scheduled to run “immediately” – or  –
  • The date and time, if the job is scheduled, is after the user-selected run date and time if it was scheduled to run in the future

Jobs with “Low Priority” (HPCJobPriorityID = 1000) will be initiated if and when:
