Slurm Accounting Storage Plugin API

Overview

This document describes Slurm Accounting Storage plugins and the API that defines them. It is intended as a resource to programmers wishing to write their own Slurm Job Accounting Storage plugins. This is version 1 of the API.

Slurm Accounting Storage plugins must conform to the Slurm Plugin API with the following specifications:

const char plugin_name[]="full text name"

A free-formatted ASCII text string that identifies the plugin.

const char plugin_type[]="major/minor"

The major type must be "accounting_storage." The minor type can be any suitable name for the type of accounting package. We currently use

  • filetxt — Information written to a text file.
  • mysql — Store information in a mysql database (using the InnoDB storage engine).
  • slurmdbd — Send information to the Slurm Database Daemon (SlurmDBD). Extra configuration is needed and described here.
  • none — Information is not stored anywhere.

const uint32_t plugin_version
If specified, identifies the version of Slurm used to build this plugin and any attempt to load the plugin from a different version of Slurm will result in an error. If not specified, then the plugin may be loadeed by Slurm commands and daemons from any version, however this may result in difficult to diagnose failures due to changes in the arguments to plugin functions or changes in other Slurm functions used by the plugin.

The programmer is urged to study src/plugins/accounting_storage/mysql for a sample implementation of a Slurm Accounting Storage plugin.

The Accounting Storage plugin was written to be a interface to storage data collected by the Job Accounting Gather plugin. When adding a new database you may want to add common functions in a common file in the src/database dir. Refer to src/database/mysql_common.c|.h for an example so other plugins can also use that database type to write out information.

API Functions

The Job Accounting Storage API uses hooks in the slurmctld.

All of the following functions are required. Functions which are not implemented must be stubbed.

int init (void)

Description:
Called when the plugin is loaded, before any other functions are called. Put global initialization here.

Returns:
SLURM_SUCCESS on success, or
SLURM_ERROR on failure.

void fini (void)

Description:
Called when the plugin is removed. Clear any allocated storage here.

Returns: None.

Note: These init and fini functions are not the same as those described in the dlopen (3) system library. The C run-time system co-opts those symbols for its own initialization. The system _init() is called before the Slurm init(), and the Slurm fini() is called before the system's _fini().

Functions called by the accounting_storage plugin

void *acct_storage_p_get_connection(bool make_agent, int conn_num, bool rollback, char *location)

Description:
acct_storage_p_get_connection() is called to get a connection to the storage medium. acct_storage_p_close_connection() should be used to free the pointer returned by this function.

Arguments:
make_agent (input) to make an agent thread of not. This is primarily used in the slurmdbd plugin.
conn_num (input) connection number to the plugin. In many cases you should plan on multiple simultaneous connections to the plugin. This number is useful since the debug messages can print this out to determine which connection the message is from.
rollback (input) Allow rollback to happen or not (in use with databases that support rollback).

Returns:
void * which is an opaque structure used inside the plugin to connection to the storage type on success, or
NULL on failure.
