The core-hours consumed by the user is calculated multiplying the reserved cores by the jobs by the elapsed time (also called wall-time) of the jobs. The reserved cores are the cores really used by the job AND the ones that can not be used by other jobs because of the user job. For example if the job requests 1 core in one node, but the node is used exclusively by the job or all its memory, the reserved cores are all the cores in the node.

Responsibility and sanctions

When incorrect or unacceptable use is demonstrated with respect to that which is specified in this document, CESGA will proceed to the interruption of the service provided in any of the following manners including the temporary suspension or the indefinite withdrawal of the service, depending on the gravity and repetition of the incident.

The responsibilities that may be derived from the incorrect utilisation of resources by the user will be assumed by the user.

CESGA will have the necessary means to permit the easy consultation of these norms.
