qstat

To get detailed information on a specific job, your or others, use:

qstat -j <job_id>

List jobs of other users

To see jobs of another user, use:

qstat -u <user>

To see jobs of all users, use:

qstat -u '*'

For example,

$ qstat -u '*'
job-ID  prior   name       user state submit/start at     queue           slots ja-task-ID

When will queued jobs start?

When your jobs will be launched depends on your jobs’ current priority on the queue. If one of your jobs is on the top of the priority queue and the resources (CPU, memory, …) you have requested are available, then that job will be launched next. If sufficient resources are not available, then a lower-priority jobs with lower resource may be launched in the meantime.

The priority scores of all jobs can be seen in column prior in the qstat -u '*' output (*). The “priority scores” are constantly recalculated as a function of all users’ jobs currently queued and running on the cluster. They are a function of:

There is no memory, that is, what you, your group, or others have run in the past does not matter.

(*) The priorities of already running jobs (those with an r in column state) are irrelevant.
