       slurmd - The compute node daemon for Slurm.


       slurmd [OPTIONS...]


       slurmd  is  the compute node daemon of Slurm. It monitors all tasks running on the compute
       node , accepts work (tasks), launches tasks, and kills running tasks upon request.


       -b     Report node rebooted when daemon restarted. Used for testing purposes.

       -c     Clear system locks as needed. This may be required if slurmd terminated abnormally.

       -C     Print actual hardware configuration and exit. The format of output is the  same  as
              used in slurm.conf to describe a node's configuration plus its uptime.

       --conf-server <host>[:<port>]
              Comma-separated  list of controllers, the first being the primary slurmctld. A port
              can (optionally) be specified for each controller. These hosts are where the slurmd
              will fetch the configuration from when running in "configless" mode.

       -d <file>
              Specify  the  fully  qualified  pathname  to  the slurmstepd program to be used for
              shepherding user job steps. This can be useful for testing purposes.

       -D     Run slurmd in the foreground. Error and debug messages will be copied to stderr.

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

              Start this node as a Dynamic Future node. It will try to match  a  node  definition
              with  a  state  of FUTURE, optionally using the specified feature to match the node

       -G     Print Generic RESource (GRES) configuration (based upon slurm.conf GRES merged with
              gres.conf contents for this node) and exit.

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

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

       -M     Lock  slurmd  pages  into system memory using mlockall (2) to disable paging of the
              slurmd process. This may help in cases where nodes are marked DOWN  during  periods
              of  heavy swap activity. If the mlockall (2) system call is not available, an error
              will be printed to the log and slurmd will continue as normal.

              It is suggested to set LaunchParameters=slurmstepd_memlock  in  slurm.conf(5)  when
              setting -M.

       -n <value>
              Set  the  daemon's  nice value to the specified value, typically a negative number.
              Also note the PropagatePrioProcess configuration parameter.

       -N <nodename>
              Run the daemon with the given nodename. Used to emulate a larger system  with  more
              than  one  slurmd  daemon  per  node.  Requires  that  Slurm  be  built  using  the
              --enable-multiple-slurmd configure option.

       -s     Change working directory of  slurmd  to  SlurmdLogFile  path  if  possible,  or  to
              SlurmdSpoolDir otherwise. If both of them fail it will fallback to /var/tmp.

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

       -V, --version
              Print version information and exit.


       The following environment variables can be used to override settings compiled into slurmd.

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


              slurmd will shutdown cleanly, waiting for in-progress rollups to finish.

       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).

              This signal is explicitly ignored.


       If  slurmd is started with the -D option then the core file will be written to the current
       working directory.  Otherwise if SlurmdLogFile 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 SlurmSpoolDir directory, or "/var/tmp/"  as
       a  last  resort.  If  none  of  the above directories can be written, no core file will be


       It may be useful to experiment with different  slurmd  specific  configuration  parameters
       using  a distinct configuration file (e.g. timeouts).  However, this special configuration
       file will not be  used  by  the  slurmctld  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.

       If you are using configless mode with a login node that runs a lot of client commands, you
       may consider running slurmd on that machine so it can  manage  a  cached  version  of  the
       configuration files. Otherwise, each client command will use the DNS record to contact the
       controller and get the configuration information, which could place additional load on the
