Section: Slurm Configuration File (5)
Updated: Slurm Configuration File



mpi.conf - Slurm configuration file to allow the configuration of MPI plugins.



mpi.conf is an ASCII file which defines parameters that control the behavior of MPI plugins. Currently the configuration file can only be used to configure the PMIx plugin, but it can be extended to support other MPI plugins as well. The file will always be located in the same directory as the slurm.conf. This file is optional.

Parameter names are case insensitive. Any text following a "#" in the configuration file is treated as a comment through the end of that line. Changes to the configuration file take effect upon restart of Slurm daemons, daemon receipt of the SIGHUP signal, or execution of the command "scontrol reconfigure" unless otherwise noted.

Settings from this configuration file can be viewed in the output of "scontrol show config". This configuration file can be included when using "configless" mode. Information from mpi.conf is read at startup or upon reconfigure by slurmctld and slurmd. Instances of slurmstepd for batch steps will receive information about the plugin requested from slurmd.



Directory to have PMIx use for temporary files. Defaults to not being set.

Define the type of fence to use for collecting inter-node data. Defaults to not being set. See also PMIxFenceBarrier.

Enable debug logging for the PMIx plugin. Defaults to 0.

Disable direct launching of tasks. Default is "true".

Allow early connections to a parent node. Defaults to "false".

Allow PMIx to use UCX for communication. Defaults to "false".

Enable additional communication optimizations when PMIxDirectConn is set to true, assuming all the job's nodes have the same architecture. Defaults to "false".

PMIxEnv=<environment variables>
Semicolon separated list of environment variables to be set in job environments to be used by PMIx. Defaults to not being set.

Define whether to fence inter-node communication for data collection. Default is "false". See also PMIxCollFence.

PMIxNetDevicesUCX=<device type>
Type of network device to use for communication. Defaults to not being set.

The maximum time (in seconds) allowed for communication between hosts to take place. Defaults to 10 seconds.

Sets the UCX_TLS variable which restricts the transports to use. The accepted values are defined in the UCX documentation and may vary between installations. Multiple values can be set and must be separated by commas. If not set, UCX tries to use all available transports and selects the best ones according to their performance capabilities and scale. Defaults to not being set.
