NAME

       slurmctld - The central management daemon of Slurm.

SYNOPSIS

       slurmctld [OPTIONS...]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

       OPTIONS

       -B     Do not recover state of BlueGene blocks when running on a bluegene system.

       -c     Clear all previous slurmctld state from its last checkpoint.  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.

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

       -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.

       -n <value>
              Set the daemon's nice value to the specified value, typically a negative number.

       -r     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.

       -R     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 be preserved.

       -v     Verbose operation. Multiple -v's increase verbosity.

       -V     Print version information and exit.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       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.

CORE FILE LOCATION

       If  slurmctld  is  started  with  the  -D option then the core file will be written to the
       current working directory.  Otherwise if SlurmctldLogFile is a fully qualified  path  name
       (starting  with  a  slash), the core file will be written to the same directory as the log
       file.  Otherwise the core file will be written  to  the  StateSaveLocation.   The  command
       "scontrol abort" can be used to abort the slurmctld daemon and generate a core file.

NOTES

       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, slurm.conf.
