PROTEUS: Short for short programs and htc-general for more several months programs

Partitions are a feature of the SLURM queue manager. Each partition has a series of attributes that define and limit the behavior of the jobs that run on it. Each node belongs to one or more partitions.

The short partition is intended for short programs and the long-preempt partition is suitable for very long jobs (several months).

In both cases, PROTEUS guarantees efficient work planning.
