Slurm version 24.05.0 is now available

We are pleased to announce the availability of Slurm version 24.05.0.

To highlight some new features in 24.05:

  • Isolated Job Step management. Enabled on a job-by-job basis with the –stepmgr option, or globally through SlurmctldParameters=enable_stepmgr.
  • Federation – Allow for client command operation while SlurmDBD is unavailable.
  • New MaxTRESRunMinsPerAccount and MaxTRESRunMinsPerUser QOS limits.
  • New USER_DELETE reservation flag.
  • New Flags=rebootless option on Features for node_features/helpers which indicates the given feature can be enabled without rebooting the node.
  • Cloud power management options: New “max_powered_nodes=<limit>” option in SlurmctldParamters, and new SuspendExcNodes=<nodes>:<count> syntax allowing for <count> nodes out of a given node list to be excluded.
  • StdIn/StdOut/StdErr now stored in SlurmDBD accounting records for batch jobs.
  • New switch/nvidia_imex plugin for IMEX channel management on NVIDIA systems.
  • New RestrictedCoresPerGPU option at the Node level, designed to ensure GPU workloads always have access to a certain number of CPUs even when nodes are running non-GPU workloads concurrently.

The Slurm documentation has also been updated to the 24.05 release. (Older versions can be found in the archive, linked from the main documentation page.)
