SLURM Reference Manual
To monitor the status of SRUN-submitted jobs, use the SLURM utility called SQUEUE. To monitor the status of SLURM-managed compute nodes, use the complementary tool called SINFO. Both SQUEUE and SINFO have explanatory sections later in this manual, with usage examples.
On BlueGene/L only, SLURM provides an additional user tool called SMAP to reveal topographically how nodes are allocated among current jobs or partitions (because job geometry is unusually important on BG/L).
Starting in August, 2007, on LC Linux (but not AIX) clusters where SLURM is the resource manager underlying LCRM or Moab, all of a user's processes on any compute node will terminate whenever a SLURM-managed batch job completes on that node. This guarantees that the next user's job will see no interference from stray processes that accompanied your job. If your login session or interactive process on a Linux compute node unexpectedly ends, your batch job to which that node was allocated has probably just completed.
