To get a reservation, you must first demonstrate a need to run outside of the normal queueing policies. Lead time for approval is 5 business days. If approved, scheduling is contingent on resource/testbed availability.

Once a reservation is granted, you will receive a reservation name by e-mail. Use the command “showres” to verify the reservation attributes.

Once the reservation is set up, jobs can be submitted to the reservation queue prior to the reservation start time.

If you have finished running your jobs before your reservation has ended, use the command “userres” to release it for other users. The argument to userres is the reservation name shown in the first column of the showres output (in the example above, smith, not R.smith).
