[slurm-users] job startup timeouts?

Hi All,

We've got a very large x86_64 cluster with lots of cores on each node, 
and hyper-threading enabled. We're running Slurm 18.08.7 with Open MPI 
4.x on CentOS 7.6.

We have a job that reports

    srun: error: timeout waiting for task launch, started 0 of xxxxxx tasks
    srun: Job step 291963.0 aborted before step completely launched.

when we try to run it at large scale. We anticipate that it could take 
as long as 15 minutes for the job to launch, based on our experience 
with smaller numbers of nodes.

Is there a timeout setting that we're missing that can be changed to 
accommodate a lengthy startup time like this?
