SLURM-Requesting Job Resources

From ALICE Documentation

Requesting job resources

ATTENTION: We recommend that you submit sbatch Slurm jobs with the #sbatch--export=none option to establish a clean environment, otherwise Slurm will propagate current environmental variables to the job. This could impact the behavior of the job, particularly for MPI jobs.

In order to use the HPC Slurm compute nodes, you must first login to a head node, hpc-login3 or hpc-login2, and submit a job.

  • To request an interactive job, use the salloc command.
  • To submit a job script, use the sbatch command.
  • To check on the status of a job already in the Slurm queue, use the squeue and sinfo commands.
