Slurm upgraded on Saga, Fram and Betzy

Information notice



Slurm has been upgraded on all clusters. On Saga, it was a minor upgrade, whereas on Fram and Betzy, it was a major version upgrade.
The new versions should mostly work like the old one, with one notable change:
“srun” no longer inherits “–cpus-per-task=n” from “sbatch”. This means that if you submit a job with “sbatch –cpus-per-task=n” or “#SBATCH –cpus-per-task=n”, you now must run “srun” with “srun –cpus-per-task=n …” or put “export SRUN_CPUS_PER_TASK=$SLURM_CPUS_PER_TASK” in the job script before running “srun”.
We hope a future version of Slurm will reverse this change.
