Greetings – Our current slurm cluster has been administratively divided into two “clusters”. There are separate network hosts (name1.case.edu and name2.case.edu) for access to distinct sets of login nodes. One slurm partition holds resources for use by people in specific courses (-p class) while other partitions designate ‘batch’, ‘gpu’ and ‘smp’ nodes.
So far, I have duplicated the ‘name1’ cluster configuration, and altered it for ‘name2’ to designate the ‘name2.case.edu’ network host. The “active jobs” app therefore sees all active jobs as belonging to both clusters.
Is there another field that can be introduced into /etc/ood/config/clusters.d/name2.yml so as to restrict the cluster definition to just the ‘class’ partition? Or is the cluster definition determined based on the ‘slurm.conf’?
With the dual cluster configs, our local ondemand does support separate shell access appropriately to the ‘name1’ and ‘name2’ login nodes.
ps Yes, this situation is pushing us to discuss implementing a second cluster via slurm, however, that is not an immediate option.
