Hardware On Demand

While setting up the hardware setting of a job, you will see priority options under the Price column. You will have either On Demand Economy, On Demand Priority, or both options depending on the hardware availability. An example is shown below:

When to Use On Demand Mode

Selecting the On Demand Economy mode will submit your job into the run queue, but it may experience a moderate delay before the run is started. Moreover, once the job begins to run, depending on resource demands, the job maybe be automatically stopped and restarted. Therefore, the On Demand option is not generally recommended for jobs with long run times or subject to upcoming deadlines.

However, the benefit to running the On Demand Economy setting is a reduced price point as compared to the On Demand Priority mode.

Note that there is currently a limit on the number of On Demand Economy cores and walltime you can set on a single job. More information here

Meaning of the On Demand Settings

If you do decide to use On Demand Economy mode, when there is a green "i" symbol, this indicates that the job may be terminated by the provider and it may not be automatically restarted.

When this symbol is yellow, it indicates that On Demand Economy for this core-type is still in beta, the job may be queued due to availability, potentially terminated by the provider and it may not be automatically restarted.
