       sview - graphical user interface to view and modify Slurm state.




       sview  can  be  used  to  view  Slurm  configuration, job, step, node and partitions state
       information.  Authorized users can also modify select information.

       The primary display modes are Jobs and Partitions, each with a selection  tab.   There  is
       also an optional map of the nodes on the left side of the window which will show the nodes
       associated with each job or partition.  Left-click on the tab of  the  display  you  would
       like to see.  Right-click on the tab in order to control which fields will be displayed.

       Within  the  display window, left-click on the header to control the sort order of entries
       (e.g. increasing or decreasing) in the display.  You can  also  left-click  and  drag  the
       headers  to  move  them right or left in the display.  If a JobID has an arrow next to it,
       click on that arrow to display or hide information about that job's steps.  Right-click on
       a line of the display to get more information about the record.

       There  is  an  Admin  Mode option which permits the user root to modify many of the fields
       displayed, such as node state or job time limit.  In the mode, a Slurm Reconfigure  Action
       is also available.  It is recommended that Admin Mode be used only while modifications are
       actively being made.  Disable Admin Mode immediately after the changes to  avoid  possibly
       making unintended changes.


       Some  sview  options  may  be  set via environment variables. These environment variables,
       along with their corresponding options, are listed below.  (Note: commandline options will
       always override these settings)

       SLURM_CONF          The location of the Slurm configuration file.


       The  sview  command  can  only  be  build if gtk+-2.0 is installed.  Systems lacking these
       libraries will have Slurm installed without the sview command.

       At least some gtk themes are unable to display large numbers of lines (jobs, nodes,  etc).
       The  information  is still in gtk's internal data structures, but not visible by scrolling
       down the window.  The gtk2-engines-qtcurve theme  does  seem  to  have  particularly  good

       Newer  gtk3  themes  do  not  allow  the  background  colors  used  for the node map to be

       On systems with the topology/tree plugin configured, the sview  command  will  attempt  to
       display  the  nodes on each switch on a separate line.  Change the sview configuration for
       optimal viewing by selecting "Options" then "Set Default Settings".  The  "Nodes  in  Row"
       and "Node Button Size in Pixels" would be the mostly commonly changed options.
