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.
Clear system locks as needed. This may be required if slurmd terminated
Specify the fully qualified pathname to the slurmstepd program to be used
for sheperding user job steps. This can be useful for testing purposes.
Run slurmd in the foreground. Error and debug messages will be copied to stderr.
Read configuration from the specified file. See NOTES below.
Help; print a brief summary of command options.
Write log messages to the specified file.
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.
The following environment variables can be used to override settings
compiled into slurmd.
The location of the SLURM configuration file. This is overridden by
explicitly naming a configuration file on the command line.
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.
