slurmctldSection: Slurm Daemon (8)
Updated: Slurm Daemon
- Clear all previous slurmctld state from its last checkpoint.
With this option, all jobs, including both running and queued, and all
node states, will be deleted. Without this option, previously running
jobs will be preserved along with node State of DOWN, DRAINED
and DRAINING nodes and the associated Reason field for those nodes.
NOTE: It is rare you would ever want to use this in production as all
jobs will be killed.
- Run slurmctld in the background.
- Run slurmctld in the foreground with logging copied to stdout.
- -f <file>
- Read configuration from the specified file. See NOTES below.
- Help; print a brief summary of command options.
- Ignore errors found while reading in state files on startup. Warning: Use of this option will mean losing the data that wasn't recovered from the state files.
- -L <file>
- Write log messages to the specified file.
- -n <value>
- Set the daemon's nice value to the specified value, typically a negative number.
- Recover partial state from last checkpoint: jobs and node DOWN/DRAIN
state and reason information state. No partition state is recovered.
This is the default action.
- Recover full state from last checkpoint: jobs, node, and partition state.
Without this option, previously running jobs will be preserved along
with node State of DOWN, DRAINED and DRAINING nodes and the associated
Reason field for those nodes. No other node or partition state will
- Change working directory of slurmctld to SlurmctldLogFile path if possible, or
to SlurmStateSaveLocation otherwise. If both of them fail it will fallback to
- Verbose operation. Multiple -v's increase verbosity.
- Print version information and exit.
- The location of the Slurm configuration file. This is overridden by
explicitly naming a configuration file on the command line.
- SIGTERM SIGINT
- slurmctld will shutdown cleanly, saving its current state to the state save directory.
- slurmctld will shutdown cleanly, saving its current state, and perform a core dump.
- Reloads the slurm configuration files, similar to 'scontrol reconfigure'.
- Reread the log level from the configs, and then reopen the log file. This should be used when setting up logrotate(8).
- SIGCHLD SIGUSR1 SIGTSTP SIGXCPU SIGQUIT SIGPIPE SIGALRM
- These signals are explicitly ignored.
