High Performance Computing Services systems analyst Jackie Scoggins will be giving a talk about how we recently migrated our scheduling environment, which manages the job scheduling for all of our clusters, cluster condo users, and institutional computing at the Lab and for the UC Berkeley Research Computing program, to the SLURM job scheduler at the SLURM User Group Meeting being held this week. SLURM, an open-source job scheduler originally developed at LLNL and used on the largest systems in the world, is now available with commercial support from SchedMD and is fast becoming the preferred scheduler to use for academic research computing. Jackie will also be giving a tutorial on using Berkeley Lab NHC (Node Health Check) with SLURM.
