sstat man page
sstat — Display various status information of a running job/step.
Status information for running jobs invoked with Slurm.
The sstat command displays job status information for your analysis. The sstat command displays information pertaining to CPU, Task, Node, Resident Set Size (RSS) and Virtual Memory (VM). You can tailor the output with the use of the --fields= option to specify the fields to be shown.
For the root user, the sstat command displays job status data for any job running on the system.
For the non-root user, the sstat output is limited to the user's jobs.
NOTE: The sstat command requires that the jobacct_gather plugin be installed and operational.
NOTE: The sstat command is not supported on Cray ALPS or IBM BlueGene systems.
- -a, --allsteps
Print all steps for the given job(s) when no step is specified.
- -e, --helpformat
Print a list of fields that can be specified with the '--format' option.
- -h, --help
Displays a general help message.
- -i, --pidformat
Predefined format to list the pids running for each job step. (JobId,Nodes,Pids)
- -j, --jobs
Format is <job(.step)>. Stat this job step or comma-separated list of job steps. This option is required. The step portion will default to lowest step running if not specified, unless the --allsteps flag is set where not specifying a step will result in all running steps to be displayed. NOTE: A step id of 'batch' will display the information about the batch step. NOTE: A step id of 'extern' will display the information about the extern step. This step is only available when using PrologFlags=contain
- -n, --noheader
No heading will be added to the output. The default action is to display a header.
Don't convert units from their original type (e.g. 2048M won't be converted to 2G).
- -o, --format, --fields
Comma separated list of fields. (use '--helpformat' for a list of available fields).
NOTE: When using the format option for listing various fields you can put a %NUMBER afterwards to specify how many characters should be printed.
i.e. format=name%30 will print 30 characters of field name right justified. A -30 will print 30 characters left justified.
- -p, --parsable
output will be '|' delimited with a '|' at the end
- -P, --parsable2
output will be '|' delimited without a '|' at the end
Display a command usage summary.
- -v, --verbose
Primarily for debugging purposes, report the state of various variables during processing.
- -V, --version
Job Status Fields
The following are the field options:
Average (system + user) CPU time of all tasks in job.
Average weighted CPU frequency of all tasks in job, in kHz.
Average number of bytes read by all tasks in job.
Average number of bytes written by all tasks in job.
Average number of page faults of all tasks in job.
Average resident set size of all tasks in job.
Average Virtual Memory size of all tasks in job.
Total energy consumed by all tasks in job, in joules. Note: Only in case of exclusive job allocation this value reflects the jobs' real energy consumption.
The number of the job or job step. It is in the form: job.jobstep.
Maximum number of bytes read by all tasks in job.
The node on which the maxdiskread occurred.
The task ID where the maxdiskread occurred.
Maximum number of bytes written by all tasks in job.
The node on which the maxdiskwrite occurred.
The task ID where the maxdiskwrite occurred.
Maximum number of page faults of all tasks in job.
The node on which the maxpages occurred.
The task ID where the maxpages occurred.
Maximum resident set size of all tasks in job.
The node on which the maxrss occurred.
The task ID where the maxrss occurred.
Maximum Virtual Memory size of all tasks in job.
The node on which the maxvsize occurred.
The task ID where the maxvsize occurred.
Minimum (system + user) CPU time of all tasks in job.
The node on which the mincpu occurred.
The task ID where the mincpu occurred.
Total number of tasks in a job or step.
Requested CPU frequency for the step, in kHz.
Some sstat options may be set via environment variables. These environment variables, along with their corresponding options, are listed below. (Note: commandline options will always override these settings)
