Brian, FWIW, we just restart slurmctld when this happens. I’ll be interested to hear if there’s a proper fix.

I have slurmdbd running and everything is (mostly) happy. It's been working well for months, but fairly regularly, when I do 'sacctmgr show runaway jobs', I get:

sacctmgr: error: Slurmctld running on cluster orion is not up, can't check running jobs

if I do 'sacctmgr show cluster', it lists the cluster but has no IP in the ControlHost field.

slurmctld is most definitely running (on the same system even), but the only fix I find is to restart slurmctld. Then I can check and there is an IP in the ControlHost field and I am able to check for runawayjobs.

Is this a known issue? Is there a better fix than restarting slurmctld?
