squeue - view information about jobs located in the SLURM scheduling queue.
squeue is used to view job and job step information for jobs managed by SLURM.
-A <account_list>, --account=<account_list> Specify the accounts of the jobs to view. Accepts a comma separated list of account names. This has no effect when listing job steps. -a, --all Display information about jobs and job steps in all partions. This causes information to be displayed about partitions that are configured as hidden and partitions that are unavailable to user's group. -h, --noheader Do not print a header on the output. --help Print a help message describing all options squeue. --hide Do not display information about jobs and job steps in all partions. By default, information about partitions that are configured as hidden or are not available to the user's group will not be displayed (i.e. this is the default behavior). -i <seconds>, --iterate=<seconds> Repeatedly gather and report the requested information at the interval specified (in seconds). By default, prints a time stamp with the header. -j <job_id_list>, --jobs=<job_id_list> Requests a comma separated list of job ids to display. Defaults to all jobs. The --jobs=<job_id_list> option may be used in conjunction with the --steps option to print step information about specific jobs. Note: If a list of job ids is provided, the jobs are displayed even if they are on hidden partitions. -l, --long Report more of the available information for the selected jobs or job steps, subject to any constraints specified. -M, --clusters=<string> Clusters to issue commands to. Multiple cluster names may be comma separated. A value of of 'all' will query to run on all clusters. -n <hostlist>, --nodes=<hostlist> Report only on jobs allocated to the specified node or list of nodes. This may either be the NodeName or NodeHostname as defined in slurm.conf(5) in the event that they differ. A node_name of localhost is mapped to the current host name. -o <output_format>, --format=<output_format> Specify the information to be displayed, its size and position (right or left justified). The default formats with various options are default "%.7i %.9P %.8j %.8u %.2t %.10M %.6D %R" -l, --long "%.7i %.9P %.8j %.8u %.8T %.10M %.9l %.6D %R" -s, --steps "%10i %.8j %.9P %.8u %.9M %N" The format of each field is "%[.][size]type". size is the minimum field size. If no size is specified, whatever is needed to print the information will be used. . indicates the output should be right justified and size must be specified. By default, output is left justified. Note that many of these type specifications are valid only for jobs while others are valid only for job steps. Valid type specifications include: %a Account associated with the job. (Valid for jobs only) %A Number of tasks created by a job step. This reports the value of the srun --ntasks option. (Valid for job steps only) %b Generic resources (gres) required by the job or step. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %B Executing (batch) host. For an allocated session, this is the host on which the session is executing (i.e. the node from which the the srun or the salloc command was executed). For a batch job, this is the node executing the batch script. In the case of a typical Linux cluster, this would be the compute node zero of the allocation. In the case of a BlueGene or a Cray system, this would be the front-end host whose slurmd daemon executes the job script. %c Minimum number of CPUs (processors) per node requested by the job. This reports the value of the srun --mincpus option with a default value of zero. (Valid for jobs only) %C Number of CPUs (processors) requested by the job or allocated to it if already running. As a job is completing this number will reflect the current number of CPUs allocated. (Valid for jobs only) %d Minimum size of temporary disk space (in MB) requested by the job. (Valid for jobs only) %D Number of nodes allocated to the job or the minimum number of nodes required by a pending job. The actual number of nodes allocated to a pending job may exceed this number if the job specified a node range count (e.g. minimum and maximum node counts) or the the job specifies a processor count instead of a node count and the cluster contains nodes with varying processor counts. As a job is completing this number will reflect the current number of nodes allocated. (Valid for jobs only) %e Time at which the job ended or is expected to end (based upon its time limit). (Valid for jobs only) %E Job dependency. This job will not begin execution until the dependent job completes. A value of zero implies this job has no dependencies. (Valid for jobs only) %f Features required by the job. (Valid for jobs only) %g Group name of the job. (Valid for jobs only) %G Group ID of the job. (Valid for jobs only) %h Can the nodes allocated to the job be shared with other jobs. (Valid for jobs only) %H Number of sockets per node requested by the job. This reports the value of the srun --sockets-per-node option. When --sockets-per-node has not been set, "*" is displayed. (Valid for jobs only) %i Job or job step id. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %I Number of cores per socket requested by the job. This reports the value of the srun --cores-per-socket option. When --cores-per-socket has not been set, "*" is displayed. (Valid for jobs only) %j Job or job step name. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %J Number of threads per core requested by the job. This reports the value of the srun --threads-per-core option. When --threads-per-core has not been set, "*" is displayed. (Valid for jobs only) %k Comment associated with the job. (Valid for jobs only) %l Time limit of the job or job step in days-hours:minutes:seconds. The value may be "NOT_SET" if not yet established or "UNLIMITED" for no limit. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %L Time left for the job to execute in days-hours:minutes:seconds. This value is calculated by subtracting the job's time used from its time limit. The value may be "NOT_SET" if not yet established or "UNLIMITED" for no limit. (Valid for jobs only) %m Minimum size of memory (in MB) requested by the job. (Valid for jobs only) %M Time used by the job or job step in days-hours:minutes:seconds. The days and hours are printed only as needed. For job steps this field shows the elapsed time since execution began and thus will be inaccurate for job steps which have been suspended. Clock skew between nodes in the cluster will cause the time to be inaccurate. If the time is obviously wrong (e.g. negative), it displays as "INVALID". (Valid for jobs and job steps) %n List of node names (or base partitions on BlueGene systems) explicitly requested by the job. (Valid for jobs only) %N List of nodes allocated to the job or job step. In the case of a COMPLETING job, the list of nodes will comprise only those nodes that have not yet been returned to service. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %O Are contiguous nodes requested by the job. (Valid for jobs only) %p Priority of the job (converted to a floating point number between 0.0 and 1.0). Also see %Q. (Valid for jobs only) %P Partition of the job or job step. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %q Quality of service associated with the job. (Valid for jobs only) %Q Priority of the job (generally a very large unsigned integer). Also see %p. (Valid for jobs only) %r The reason a job is in its current state. See the JOB REASON CODES section below for more information. (Valid for jobs only) %R For pending jobs: the reason a job is waiting for execution is printed within parenthesis. For terminated jobs with failure: an explanation as to why the job failed is printed within parenthesis. For all other job states: the list of allocate nodes. See the JOB REASON CODES section below for more information. (Valid for jobs only) %s Node selection plugin specific data for a job. Possible data includes: Geometry requirement of resource allocation (X,Y,Z dimensions), Connection type (TORUS, MESH, or NAV == torus else mesh), Permit rotation of geometry (yes or no), Node use (VIRTUAL or COPROCESSOR), etc. (Valid for jobs only) %S Actual or expected start time of the job or job step. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %t Job state, compact form: PD (pending), R (running), CA (cancelled), CF(configuring), CG (completing), CD (completed), F (failed), TO (timeout), and NF (node failure). See the JOB STATE CODES section below for more information. (Valid for jobs only) %T Job state, extended form: PENDING, RUNNING, SUSPENDED, CANCELLED, COMPLETING, COMPLETED, CONFIGURING, FAILED, TIMEOUT, PREEMPTED, and NODE_FAIL. See the JOB STATE CODES section below for more information. (Valid for jobs only) %u User name for a job or job step. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %U User ID for a job or job step. (Valid for jobs and job steps) %v Reservation for the job. (Valid for jobs only) %w Workload Characterization Key (wckey). (Valid for jobs only) %W Licenses reserved for the job. (Valid for jobs only) %x List of node names explicitly excluded by the job. (Valid for jobs only) %z Number of requested sockets, cores, and threads (S:C:T) per node for the job. When (S:C:T) has not been set, "*" is displayed. (Valid for jobs only) -p <part_list>, --partition=<part_list> Specify the partitions of the jobs or steps to view. Accepts a comma separated list of partition names. -q <qos_list>, --qos=<qos_list> Specify the qos(s) of the jobs or steps to view. Accepts a comma separated list of qos's. -R, --reservation=reservation_name Specify the reservation of the jobs to view. -s, --steps Specify the job steps to view. This flag indicates that a comma separated list of job steps to view follows without an equal sign (see examples). The job step format is "job_id.step_id". Defaults to all job steps. -S <sort_list>, --sort=<sort_list> Specification of the order in which records should be reported. This uses the same field specifciation as the <output_format>. Multiple sorts may be performed by listing multiple sort fields separated by commas. The field specifications may be preceded by "+" or "-" for ascending (default) and descending order respectively. For example, a sort value of "P,U" will sort the records by partition name then by user id. The default value of sort for jobs is "P,t,-p" (increasing partition name then within a given partition by increasing node state and then decreasing priority). The default value of sort for job steps is "P,i" (increasing partition name then within a given partition by increasing step id). --start Report the expected start time of pending jobs in order of increasing start time. This is equivalent to the following options: --format="%.7i %.9P %.8j %.8u %.2t %.19S %.6D %R", --sort=S and --states=PENDING. Any of these options may be explicitly changed as desired by combining the --start option with other option values (e.g. to use a different output format). The expected start time of pending jobs is only available if the SLURM is configured to use the backfill scheduling plugin. -t <state_list>, --states=<state_list> Specify the states of jobs to view. Accepts a comma separated list of state names or "all". If "all" is specified then jobs of all states will be reported. If no state is specified then pending, running, and completing jobs are reported. Valid states (in both extended and compact form) include: PENDING (PD), RUNNING (R), SUSPENDED (S), COMPLETING (CG), COMPLETED (CD), CONFIGURING (CF), CANCELLED (CA), FAILED (F), TIMEOUT (TO), PREEMPTED (PR) and NODE_FAIL (NF). Note the <state_list> supplied is case insensitve ("pd" and "PD" work the same). See the JOB STATE CODES section below for more information. -u <user_list>, --user=<user_list> Request jobs or job steps from a comma separated list of users. The list can consist of user names or user id numbers. --usage Print a brief help message listing the squeue options. -v, --verbose Report details of squeues actions. -V , --version Print version information and exit.
JOB REASON CODES
These codes identify the reason that a job is waiting for execution. A job may be waiting for more than one reason, in which case only one of those reasons is displayed. Dependency This job is waiting for a dependent job to complete. None No reason is set for this job. PartitionDown The partition required by this job is in a DOWN state. PartitionNodeLimit The number of nodes required by this job is outside of it's partitions current limits. Can also indicate that required nodes are DOWN or DRAINED. PartitionTimeLimit The job's time limit exceeds it's partition's current time limit. Priority One or more higher priority jobs exist for this partition. Resources The job is waiting for resources to become available. NodeDown A node required by the job is down. BadConstraints The job's constraints can not be satisfied. SystemFailure Failure of the SLURM system, a file system, the network, etc. JobLaunchFailure The job could not be launched. This may be due to a file system problem, invalid program name, etc. NonZeroExitCode The job terminated with a non-zero exit code. TimeLimit The job exhausted its time limit. InactiveLimit The job reached the system InactiveLimit.
JOB STATE CODES
Jobs typically pass through several states in the course of their execution. The typical states are PENDING, RUNNING, SUSPENDED, COMPLETING, and COMPLETED. An explanation of each state follows. CA CANCELLED Job was explicitly cancelled by the user or system administrator. The job may or may not have been initiated. CD COMPLETED Job has terminated all processes on all nodes. CF CONFIGURING Job has been allocated resources, but are waiting for them to become ready for use (e.g. booting). CG COMPLETING Job is in the process of completing. Some processes on some nodes may still be active. F FAILED Job terminated with non-zero exit code or other failure condition. NF NODE_FAIL Job terminated due to failure of one or more allocated nodes. PD PENDING Job is awaiting resource allocation. PR PREEMPTED Job terminated due to preemption. R RUNNING Job currently has an allocation. S SUSPENDED Job has an allocation, but execution has been suspended. TO TIMEOUT Job terminated upon reaching its time limit.
Some squeue 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_CLUSTERS Same as --clusters SLURM_CONF The location of the SLURM configuration file. SLURM_TIME_FORMAT Specify the format used to report time stamps. A value of standard, the default value, generates output in the form "year-month- dateThour:minute:second". A value of relative returns only "hour:minute:second" if the current day. For other dates in the current year it prints the "hour:minute" preceded by "Tomorr" (tomorrow), "Ystday" (yesterday), the name of the day for the coming week (e.g. "Mon", "Tue", etc.), otherwise the date (e.g. "25 Apr"). For other years it returns a date month and year without a time (e.g. "6 Jun 2012"). Another suggested value is "%a %T" for a day of week and time stamp (e.g. "Mon 12:34:56"). All of the time stamps use a 24 hour format. SQUEUE_ACCOUNT -A <account_list>, --account=<account_list> SQUEUE_ALL -a, --all SQUEUE_FORMAT -o <output_format>, --format=<output_format> SQUEUE_PARTITION -p <part_list>, --partition=<part_list> SQUEUE_QOS -p <qos_list>, --qos=<qos_list> SQUEUE_SORT -S <sort_list>, --sort=<sort_list> SQUEUE_STATES -t <state_list>, --states=<state_list> SQUEUE_USERS -u <user_list>, --users=<user_list>
