Basics of SLURM Jobs

The Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management (SLURM) is a system providing job scheduling and job management on compute clusters. With SLURM, a user requests resources and submits a job to a queue. The system will then take jobs from queues, allocate the necessary nodes, and execute them.

Do NOT run large, long, multi-threaded, parallel, or CPU-intensive jobs on a front-end login host. All users share the front-end hosts, and running anything but the smallest test job will negatively impact everyone's ability to use Scholar. Always use SLURM to submit your work as a job.
