Using the Batch System
The SLURM (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management) workload manager is a software package for submitting, scheduling, and monitoring jobs on large compute clusters. SLURM is available on Chinook for submitting and monitoring user jobs.
Similar to PBS/TORQUE, SLURM accepts user jobs specified in batch scripts. More information on SLURM batch scripts may be found below.
Common SLURM commands, SLURM batch scripts, translating from PBS/TORQUE to SLURM, and running interactive jobs are discussed below. SchedMD, the company behind SLURM, has also put together a quick reference for SLURM commands.
