A new version with some bugfixes and new features for our batch system, slurm, has been released.

The new version has improvments in how the jobs are scheduled that will enhance utilization of the cluster and we will also change some other configurations for better throughput of jobs.

The upgrade is a major version and will require all jobs to be stopped during the upgrade.

The upgrade should be complete within an hour including testing of the new version on abisko.

Update:
System upgrade finished at 10:20.

Important updates:

- Smallest number of allocatable unit is now six (6).
    Now you can allocate in multiples of 6 instead of 12.
- Upgraded to slurm 2.5.3
