- HPC Sample Job: Towhee
How Many Jobs Can I Run? Why Are Some of My Jobs Stuck in the Queue, Even When Resources Are Available?
If your jobs are short (less than 1 CPU-day per job), you can run as many as we have free CPU cores.
If you've already reserved a lot of CPU time (around 1000 CPU-days), we may delay running some of your later jobs to ensure resources are available to others.
Full scheduler policy details and examples are in the HPC Job Scheduling document.
