       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.  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.

       -d     Run slurmctld in the background.

       -D     Run slurmctld in the foreground with logging copied to stdout.

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

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

       -i     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.

       -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

       -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.

       -s     Change  working  directory of slurmctld to SlurmctldLogFile path if possible, or to
              SlurmStateSaveLocation otherwise.  If  both  of  them  fail  it  will  fallback  to

       -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

       SLURM_CONF          The location of the Slurm configuration file. This  is  overridden  by
                           explicitly naming a configuration file on the command line.


       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, provided SlurmUser has write permission on the directory.  Otherwise the  core  file
       will  be written to the StateSaveLocation, or "/var/tmp/" as a last resort. If none of the
       above directories have write permission for SlurmUser, no core file will be produced.  The
       command  "scontrol  abort"  can  be used to abort the slurmctld daemon and generate a core


              slurmctld will shutdown cleanly,  saving  its  current  state  to  the  state  save

              slurmctld will shutdown cleanly, saving its current state, and perform a core dump.

       SIGHUP 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).

              These signals are explicitly ignored.


       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.
