slurmd - The compute node daemon for SLURM.
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.
-c Clear system locks as needed. This may be required if slurmd
Specify the fully qualified pathname to the slurmstepd program
to be used for sheperding user job steps. This can be useful for
-D Run slurmd in the foreground. Error and debug messages will be
copied to stderr.
Read configuration from the specified file. See NOTES below.
-h Help; print a brief summary of command options.
Write log messages to the specified file.
-M 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
-v Verbose operation. Multiple -v’s increase verbosity.
-V Print version information and exit.
The following environment variables can be used to override settings
compiled into slurmd.
SLURM_CONF 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,
