NAME

slurmd - The compute node daemon for SLURM.

 

SYNOPSIS

slurmd [OPTIONS...]

 

DESCRIPTION

slurmd is the compute node daemon of Slurm. It monitors all tasks running on the compute node , accepts work (tasks), launches tasks, and kills running tasks upon request.
OPTIONS
-c
Clear system locks as needed. This may be required if slurmd terminated abnormally.
-d <file>
Specify the fully qualified pathname to the slurmstepd program to be used for sheperding user job steps. This can be useful for testing purposes.
-D
Run slurmd in the foreground. Error and debug messages will be copied to stderr.
-f <file>
Read configuration from the specified file. See NOTES below.
-h
Help; print a brief summary of command options.
-L <file>
Write log messages to the specified file.
-M
Lock slurmd pages into system memory using mlockall(2) to disable paging of the slurmd process. This may help in cases where nodes are marked DOWN during periods of heavy swap activity. If the mlockall(2) system call is not available, an error will be printed to the log and slurmd will continue as normal.
-v
Verbose operation. Multiple -v's increase verbosity.
-V
Print version information and exit.

 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The following environment variables can be used to override settings compiled into slurmd.
SLURM_CONF
The location of the SLURM configuration file. This is overridden by explicitly naming a configuration file on the command line.

 

NOTES

It may be useful to experiment with different slurmd specific configuration parameters using a distinct configuration file (e.g. timeouts). However, this special configuration file will not be used by the slurmctld daemon or the Slurm programs, unless you specifically tell each of them to use it. If you desire changing communication ports, the location of the temporary file system, or other parameters used by other Slurm components, change the common configuration file, slurm.conf.
