HiPerGator 2.0 documentation
While there is a lot of documentation available on the SLURM web page, we provide these commands to help users with examples and handy references. Have a favorite SLURM command? Users can edit the wiki pages, please add your examples.
Checking on the queue
The basic command is squeue. The full documentation for squeue is available on the SLURM web page, but we hope these examples are useful as they are and as templates for further customization.
For a list of jobs running under a particular group, use the -A flag (for Account) with the group name.
squeue -A group_name
For a summary that is similar to the MOAB/Torque showq command (again, -u user or -A group can be added):
squeue -o "%.10A %.18u %.4t %.8C %.20L %.30S"
To include qos and limit to a group:
squeue -A group_name -O jobarrayid,qos,name,username,timelimit,numcpus,reasonlist
Checking information on completed jobs
The basic command is sacct. The full documentation for sacct is available on the SLURM web page, but we hope these examples are useful as they are and as templates for further customization.
By default, sacct will only show your in the queue or running since midnight of the current day. To view jobs from a particular date, you can specify a start time (-S or --starttime) with one of a number of formats, for example since May 1st:
sacct -S 0501
The default columns displayed are:
JobID JobName Partition Account AllocCPUS State ExitCode
To other information can either be pulled from the -l view which has a long list of columns, or by specifying the information you want to view. For example to see the number of CPUs, total memory use and walltime of all jobs since May 1st, you could use:
sacct -S 0501 -o JobIDRaw,JobName,NCPUS,MaxRSS,Elapsed
To do the same for a whole group:
sacct -S 0501 -o JobIDRaw,JobName,User,NCPUS,MaxRSS,Elapsed -a -A group_name
