Accounting and Job History Retrieval

Slurms job records can show information including memory usage, time start/end, and other details about your jobs submitted to the cluster. This can be helpful for creating a more efficient resource allocation to your jobs or help with looking into any errors you may run into.


How to show job information on a specific job:

hpc@koko-login:$ sacct -j jobid

You can also add a format to the sacct command:

hpc@koko-login:$ sacct -j jobid --format="User,Jobid,Jobname,partition,state,time,start,end,elapsed,nodelist"

To look at jobs starting from a specific date:

hpc@koko-login:$ sacct --starttime 2021-02-18 --format="User,Jobid,Jobname,partition,state,time,start,end,elapsed,nodelist"

A list of available format parameters and other options for sacct can be found here


How to look at jobs currently in queue:
