SLURM Reference Manual


SINFO Output Fields

SINFO reports are tables each column of which lists values for some node-related field or property. This section explains all the column heads ("output field" labels) that can possibly appear in an SINFO report (and, when not obvious from the column content, tells which SINFO option generates a report that includes the column in question). Option -h (--noheader) eliminates these column heads for easier reuse of SINFO's output by other programs.

AVAIL
is the current state of a SLURM-managed partition (either UP or DOWN). For the current state of the individual nodes or node subsets within a partition, see the STATE column (both AVAIL and STATE appear in SINFO's default report). See also REASON.
CPUS
reports the number of CPUs (processors) per node in node-oriented (rather than partition-oriented) output (such as from SINFO options -Nl).
FEATURES
lists the declared SLURM features of each node or node subset, if any (the default FEATURE is "null"), in node-oriented output (such as from SINFO options -Nl).
GROUPS
lists the groups allowed to use resources from each reported partition (the default is ALL groups). Use -l (--long).
JOB_SIZE
reports the minimum and maximum node count that can be allocated to any user job in a reported partition. A single number indicates that the minimun and maximum node count are the same, while INFINITE indicates no maximum node count. Use -l (--long).
MEMORY
is the size of real memory in megabytes on the reported nodes in node-oriented output (use -Nl).
NODELIST
lists the names (usually using a bracketed numerical range) of nodes associated with each reported partition (or instead, NODELIST appears first in node-oriented reports such as from -Nl).
NODES
is the count of nodes with each reported configuration (or partition).
NODES(A/I)
is the count of nodes with a requested configuration by node state in the form "available/idle." Use -o (--format) with the output specifier %A to request this column.
NODES(A/I/O/T)
is the count of nodes with a requested configuration by node state in the form "available/idle/other/total.' Use either -s (--summarize) or -o (--format) with the output specifier %F to request this column.
PARTITION
is the name of a SLURM-managed partition (where the suffix * identifies the default partition).
REASON
shows the first 35 characters of the field optionally provided by each SLURM administrator to explain why a node's STATE is either DOWN or DRAINED. Use -R (--list-reasons) to get this column; use -Rl to get both REASON and STATE in the same SINFO report. The default REASON is "null."
ROOT
reveals if the ability to allocate resources in a reported partition is restricted to the root user (YES or NO).
SHARE
reveals if jobs that are allocated resources in a reported partition will share those resources. Use -l (--long). The possible values for SHARE are:
NO
indicates that resources are never shared.
FORCE
indicates that resources are always shared.
YES
indicates that resources may be shared if specific job or resource features otherwise allow.
STATE
is the current state of an individual node or node subset within a SLURM-managed partition. For the current state of the whole partition, see the AVAIL column (both AVAIL and STATE appear in SINFO's default report). The next section lists and explains the multiple values possible in the STATE column. See also REASON.
TIMELIMIT
lists the maximum time limit for any user job in a reported partition in days:hours:minutes:seconds (INFINITE means no job time limit). TIMELIMIT appears in SINFO's default report.
TMP_DISK
is the size of temporary disk space in megabytes on the reported nodes. Use -Nl to report.
WEIGHT
is an integer representing the scheduling weight on each node (in a similar set). Use -Nl to report.
