Running a job on ALICE using Slurm

The ALICE cluster uses Slurm (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management) for job scheduling. Slurm is an open-source job scheduler that allocates compute resources on clusters for jobs. Slurm has been deployed at various national and international computing centres, and by approximately 60% of the TOP500 supercomputers in the world.

The following pages will give you a basic overview of Slurm on ALICE. You can learn much more about Slurm and its commands from the official Slurm website.

To use Slurm commands, you must first log in to ALICE. For information on how to login to the ALICE long nodes see section Login to cluster.
