memory

This parameter is deprecated, use resourceRequirements to override the memory requirements specified in the job definition. It's not supported for jobs that run on Fargate resources. For jobs run on EC2 resources, it overrides the memory parameter set in the job definition, but doesn't override any memory requirement specified in the resourceRequirements structure in the job definition. To override memory requirements that are specified in the resourceRequirements structure in the job definition, resourceRequirements must be specified in the SubmitJob request, with type set to MEMORY and value set to the new value. For more information, see Can't override job definition resource requirements in the AWS Batch User Guide.

To override vCPU requirements that are specified in the resourceRequirements structure in the job definition, resourceRequirements must be specified in the SubmitJob request, with type set to VCPU and value set to the new value.
