cray.conf - Slurm configuration file for the Cray-specific information
is an ASCII file which defines parameters used by Slurm's
select/cray plugin in support of Cray systems. The file location can be
modified at system build time using the DEFAULT_SLURM_CONF parameter or at
execution time by setting the SLURM_CONF environment variable. The file will
always be located in the same directory as the slurm.conf
default configuration parameters will work properly in a typical installation
and this file will not be required.
Parameter names are case insensitive. Any text following a "#" in the
configuration file is treated as a comment through the end of that line.
Changes to the configuration file take effect upon restart of Slurm daemons,
daemon receipt of the SIGHUP signal, or execution of the command
"scontrol reconfigure" unless otherwise noted.
The configuration parameters available include:
- Communication protocol version number to be used between
Slurm and ALPS/BASIL. The default value is BASIL's response to the ENGINE
query. Use with caution: Changes in ALPS communications which are not
recognized by Slurm could result in loss of jobs. Currently supported
values include 1.1, 1.2.0, 1.3.0, 3.1.0, 4.0, 4.1.0, 4.2.0, 5.0, 5.1, 5.2
or "latest". A value of "latest" will use the most
current version of Slurm's logic and can be useful for validation with new
versions of ALPS.
- Fully qualified pathname of the directory in which ALPS is
installed. The default value is /usr.
- Fully qualified pathname to the apbasil command. The
default value is /usr/bin/apbasil.
- How many seconds to wait for the apbasil command to
complete before killing it. By default, wait indefinitely
- Fully qualified pathname to the apkill command. The default
value is /usr/bin/apkill.
- When set to yes this will make it so the slurmctld will not
signal the apid's in a batch job. Instead it relies on the rpc coming from
the slurmctld to kill the job to end things correctly.
- Name of the ALPS database. The default value is
- Hostname of the database server. The default value is
- Password used to access the ALPS database. The default
value is NULL, which will load the password from the my.cnf file.
- Port used to access the ALPS database. The default value is
- Name of user used to access the ALPS database. The default
value is NULL, which will load the user name from the my.cnf file.
- Only allocate requested node resources instead of the whole
node. In both cases the user will be charged for the entire node.
- Slurm does not normally schedule jobs while its job or node
state information is out of synchronization with that of ALPS. This
parameter specifies a maximum time to defer job scheduling while waiting
for consistent state. The inconsistent state might be caused by a variety
of hardware or software failures and proceeding could result in more
failures. The default value is 3600 (one hour). A value of zero will wait
indefinitely for consistent state.
