Slurm job and step update functions

Syntax

#include <slurm/slurm.h>

void slurm_init_job_desc_msg (
job_desc_msg_t *job_desc_msg_ptr
);

void slurm_init_update_step_msg (
step_update_request_msg_t * step_msg
);

int slurm_update_job (
job_desc_msg_t * job_msg
);

int slurm_update_job2 (
       job_desc_msg_t * job_msg,
       job_array_resp_msg_t **resp
);

int slurm_update_step (
step_update_request_msg_t * step_msg
);

void slurm_free_job_array_resp (
       job_array_resp_msg_t *resp
);

Arguments

job_msg

Specifies the pointer to a job descriptor. See slurm.h for full details on the data structure's contents.

step_msg

Specifies the pointer to a step descriptor. See slurm.h for full details on the data structure's contents.

resp

Array of error codes and job IDs. Always use the slurm_free_job_array_resp function to release the memory allocated to hold the error codes.

Description

slurm_init_job_desc_msg

Initialize the contents of a job descriptor with default values. Execute this function before issuing a request to submit or modify a job.

slurm_init_update_step_msg

Initialize the contents of a job step update descriptor with default values. Execute this function before issuing a request to modify a job step.

slurm_update_job

Update a job with the changes made to the data structure passed as an argument to the function.

slurm_update_job2

Update a job or job array with the changes made to the data structure passed as an argument to the function. Call the function slurm_free_job_array_resp to release memory allocated for the response array.

slurm_update_step

Update a job step with the changes made to the data structure passed as an argument to the function.

slurm_free_job_array_resp

Release memory allocated by the slurm_suspend2, slurm_resume2, slurm_requeue2, and slurm_update_job2 functions.

Return Value

On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and the Slurm error code is set appropriately. The function slurm_update_job2 returns zero if the resp array is filled, in which the that array should be examined to determine the error codes for individual tasks of a job array. Then call the function slurm_free_job_array_resp to release memory allocated for the response array.

Errors

SLURM_PROTOCOL_VERSION_ERROR Protocol version has changed, re-link your code.

ESLURM_ACCESS_DENIED The requesting user lacks authorization for the requested action (e.g. trying to modify another user's job).

ESLURM_INVALID_JOB_ID  Invalid job or step ID value.

ESLURM_INVALID_TIME_VALUE  Invalid time value.

Example

#include <stdio.h>
#include <slurm/slurm.h>
#include <slurm/slurm_errno.h>

int main (int argc, char *argv[])
{
job_desc_msg_t              update_job_msg;
step_update_request_msg_t   update_step_msg;

slurm_init_job_desc_msg( &update_job_msg );
update_job_msg.job_id = 1234;
update_job_msg time_limit = 200;
if (slurm_update_job (&update_job_msg)) {
slurm_perror ("slurm_update_job error");
exit (1);
}

slurm_init_update_step_msg( &update_step_msg );
update_step_msg.job_id = 1234;
update_step_msg.step_id = 2;
update_step_msg time_limit = 30;
if (slurm_update_step (&update_step_msg)) {
slurm_perror ("slurm_update_step error");
exit (1);
}
exit (0);
}

Note

These functions are included in the libslurm library, which must be linked to your process for use (e.g. "cc -lslurm myprog.c").
