The batch farm uses a fair share system to schedule jobs using Slurm, the batch scheduler and the fair tree algorithm.  Fair share guarantees that CPU allocations are balanced out according to an allocation over time.

To use a project, the user specified the name of the project using the PROJECT parameter, and Auger will then schedule the work to be done using that project account/user (if the user is a member of that project).

Fairshare allocations and actual use are shown at

or using the sshare command on an interactive login (ifarm) machine.

The fair tree algorithm is documented at
