Check the balance of your allocation

When a project's allocation has expired and/or has an insufficent balance, jobs scripts will not be released to run on Shaheen. Usually, the reason is either AssocMaxJ and/or AssocGrpC, as shown below:

squeue -u $username

      JOBID  USER    ACCOUNT    NAME  ST REASON         START_TIME                  TIME  TIME_LEFT NODES
    1234567  user1   kxxxx      job1  PD AssocMaxJ         N/A                       0:00 1-00:00:00     1
    1234568  user2   kxxxy      job2  PD AssocGrpC         N/A                       0:00 1-00:00:00     2

Before submitting your jobs, check your project allocation, expiration and balance using the "sb" command. Use “groups” command to find out your projects number.
