Introduction to the Slurm workload manager

Slurm is a a workload manager commonly used as a job scheluder in HPC systems. This module will familiarise you with the basic slurm commands. You can choose between two ways of learning about Slurm: 

  • Read through the description of the commands in the ARCHER2 user guide or
  • Run through a practical introduction on the Slurm scheduler

Note that even though we use the ARCHER2 documentation, most of this information will be valid for any HPC system that uses Slurm.
