Managing Full Access Allocations on Quest
How to obtain information on full access/buy-in allocation resources on Quest.
Users with full access, also referred to as buy-in allocations, can view information about their nodes, queues, and allocation members.
Full access allocation IDs usually start with the letter b; e.g. b1002. Use your allocation ID in place of <allocationID> in all commands below, without the surrounding <>.
List Allocation Members
Display all current members of the allocation:
module load utilities grouplist <allocationID>
Status of Allocation Jobs in Queue
Display the the status of all jobs submitted to an allocation
squeue –A <allocationID>

Status of Allocation Nodes
The sinfo command will give you information about state of a particular account's compute nodes. For full access allocations which are using "buyin" partition (i.e. queue), nodes associated with the allocation can be listed as below:
sinfo -N -p <allocationID>
For full access allocations which have multiple partitions (i.e. queues) such as b1042, b0194 or b1095, nodes associated with the specific queue can be listed as below:
sinfo -N -p <partitionID>
Individual Node Status
After you identified your allocation's and/or partition's nodes using sinfo you can use the following command to get detailed information about a specific node:
scontrol show node <nodeID>
scontrol show node qnode5004
If the above commands don't work for your allocation, contact email@example.com for assistance.
Why are my jobs running on nodes other than those reserved for my allocation?
If you have access to more than one allocation or queue (i.e. partition) on Quest, you may have defined a different allocation or queue in your job submission script. Please make sure that the intended allocation or queue have been setup correctly in your job submission script.
