[slurm-users] Is that possible to submit jobs to a Slurm cluster right from a developer's PC

Sure; they’ll need to have the appropriate part of SLURM installed and the config file. This is similar to having just one login node per user. Typically login nodes don’t run either daemon.

We are trying to setup a tiny Slurm cluster to manage shared access to the GPU server in our team. Both slurmctld and slumrd are going to run on this GPU server. But here is a problem. On one hand, we don't want to give developers ssh access to that box, because otherwise they might bypass Slurm job queue and launch jobs directly on the box. On the other hand, if developers don't have ssh access to the box, how can they run 'sbatch' command to submit jobs?

Does Slurm provide an option to allow developers submit jobs right from their own PCs?
