Using Slurm for your Research

The Slurm Workload Manager provides three key functions:

  • allocating access to resources or compute nodes to users for the duration of the job so they can perform work,
  • providing a framework for starting, executing, and monitoring parallel jobs such on a set of allocated nodes, and
  • streamlining and optimizing access to resources by managing a queue of pending jobs.

Slurm is the workload manager on about 60% of the TOP500 supercomputers.
