SLURM Reference Manual
SLURM and Operating Systems
SLURM was originally used as a resource manager for Linux (specifically for CHAOS) systems. But starting in 2006, LC began gradually replacing IBM's native LoadLeveler with SLURM on its AIX systems as well. The AIX-SLURM combination behaves (and has been configured by LC system administrators to behave) slightly differently than the CHAOS-SLURM combination, however. This means that to answer a job-control question increasingly requires knowing both the relevant resource manager and the current operating system.
This table summarizes the known tool contrasts among the different resource-manager/operating-system combinations now possible on LC machines:
