Slurm GPU Resources (Kebnekaise)

Slurm GPU Resources (Kebnekaise)

NOTE: your project need to have time on the GPU nodes to use them, as they are considered a separate resource now. To use them you use the SLURM command mentioned below. For V100s there is no specific partition you need to give, but there is for the A100s - see below.

We have two types of GPU cards available on Kebnekaise, NVIDIA Tesla V100 (Volta) and NVIDIA A100 (Ampere).

To request GPU resources one has to include a GRES in the submit file. The general format is:

Slurm OpenMP Examples

Slurm OpenMP Examples

This example shows a 28 core OpenMP Job (maximum size for one normal node on Kebnekaise).

#!/bin/bash
# Example with 28 cores for OpenMP
#
# Project/Account
#SBATCH -A hpc2n-1234-56
#
# Number of cores
#SBATCH -c 28
#
# Runtime of this jobs is less then 12 hours.
#SBATCH --time=12:00:00
#

# Clear the environment from any previously loaded modules
module purge > /dev/null 2>&1

# Load the module environment suitable for the job
module load foss/2019a
​
# Set OMP_NUM_THREADS to the same value as -c
# with a fallback in case it isn't set.

SLURM commands and information

SLURM commands and information

There are many more commands than the ones we have chosen to look at below, but they are the most commonly used ones. You can find more information on the SLURM homepage: SLURM documentation

You can run programs either by giving all the commands on the command line or by submitting a job script. If you ask for the resources on the command line, you will wait for the program to run before you can use the window again (unless you can send it to the background with &).
