Running jobs with SLURM


SLURM is an open source workload management and job scheduling system. Research Computing clusters adopted SLURM in February 2014, but previously used Torque, Maui/Moab and Gold (referred to in the following simply as "PBS") for the same purpose. Please note that there are several commands available in SLURM with the same names as in PBS (e.g. showq, qstat, qsub, qdel, qrerun) intended for backwards compatibility, but in general we would recommend using the native SLURM commands, as described below.
