What is Fair-Share?

FairShare is a score that determines what priority you have in the scheduling queue for your jobs. The more jobs you run, the lower your score becomes, temporarily. A number of factors are used to determine this score -- please read this Fairshare document for more information.

To find out what your score is, enter `sshare -u USERNAME` in your Odyssey terminal session. In general, a score of 0.5 or above means you have higher priority for scheduling.
