SLURM Reference Manual
manual explains the design goals and unique roles of LC's locally
developed Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management (SLURM),
intended as a customized replacement for RMS or NQS in allocating
compute resources (mostly nodes) to queued jobs on machines running
the CHAOS operating system.
Sections describe the features of both control daemon SLURMCTLD
and local daemon SLURMD, as well as SLURM's adaptability by means of
The six SLURM user utilities for querying and controlling jobs managed
by SLURM are also introduced.
The features and options of SRUN, the tool used to launch both
parallel interactive and batch jobs under SLURM management, receive
especially detailed treatment.
Another section explains how to monitor SRUN-submitted jobs by using
SQUEUE, as well as how to customize SQUEUE's reports using its own
format specification language.
Likewise, a section tells how to check the current status of nodes
(individually or by partition) using SINFO.
The general-user features of SCONTROL are also included,
along with a review of the SCANCEL options for signaling or killing
your SLURM-managed jobs.
- SLURM is part of the CHAOS project,
and is available on selected large LC clusters that run the
CHAOS version of Linux.
