We're using SGE (Sun Grid Manager). We have some limitations on the total number of concurrent jobs from all users.
I would like to know if it's possible to set a temporary, voluntary limit on the number of concurrent running jobs for a specific user.
For example user
dave is about to submit 500 jobs, but he would like no more than 100 to run concurrently, e.g. since he knows the jobs do lots of I/O which stuck the filesytem (true story, unfortunately).
Is that possible?
