PBSPro store the temporary output in its spool directory, which usually stays in /var partition of the standalone compute node, and not under /home user quota.
I encounter a problem, that some user might have some kind of malformed program. It doesn’t exit after encounter an error, but continuously print “Error encountered. Retrying…” and some debug info into its stdout, once in several millisecond.
It quickly eats up the /var partition, and render other jobs / system process unstable.
Is there an option to limit the maximum size of stdout and stderr of a job (which resides on compute node), but not interfere with its other behaviour (create other file in its CWD, on shared storage)?
