       slurmctld - The central management daemon of Slurm.


       slurmctld [OPTIONS...]


       slurmctld  is  the  central management daemon of Slurm. It monitors all
       other Slurm daemons and resources, accepts work (jobs),  and  allocates
       resources to those jobs. Given the critical functionality of slurmctld,
       there may be a backup server to assume these  functions  in  the  event
       that the primary server fails.


       -c     Clear all previous slurmctld state from its last checkpoint.  If
              not specified, previously running jobs will be  preserved  along
              with  the  state  of  DOWN,  DRAINED  and DRAINING nodes and the
              associated reason field for those nodes.

       -D     Debug mode. Execute slurmctld in the foreground with logging  to

       -f <file>
              Read configuration from the specified file. See NOTES below.

       -h     Help; print a brief summary of command options.

       -L <file>
              Write log messages to the specified file.

       -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 slurmctld.

       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  slurmctld  specific
       configuration  parameters  using  a  distinct  configuration file (e.g.
       timeouts).  However, this special configuration file will not  be  used
       by  the  slurmd  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,
