Job Scheduler Configuration in Microsoft HPC Pack

Applies To: Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 R2, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012, Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2, Windows HPC Server 2008 R2

The HPC Job Scheduler Service runs on the head node and queues incoming jobs and tasks, allocates resources, dispatches tasks to nodes, and monitors the status of jobs, tasks, and nodes.

You can adjust how resources are allocated to jobs, and how jobs are handled, by configuring the HPC Job Scheduler Service. This section provides detailed information about the configuration options.


The order of the job queue is based on job priority level and submit time. Jobs with higher priority levels run before lower priority jobs. The job submit time determines the order within each priority level. Job Templates are your primary method for defining custom job submission policies for your cluster. A job template allows you to associate a set of default values and value constraints for job properties with a particular set of users. See also Managing the Job Queue.
