After 9 months of development and testing we are pleased to announce the
availability of Slurm version 19.05.0!
Downloads are available from https://www.schedmd.com/downloads.php.
Highlights of the 19.05 release include:
- The new select/cons_tres plugin, which introduces new GPU-specific job
submission options, and extends Slurm's backfill scheduling logic to
cover resources beyond just cpus and memory.
- A new NSS library - nss_slurm - has been developed, which can provide
directory info for the job step's user to local processes.
- Heterogeneous Job support on Cray Aries systems.
- A new "Association" priority factor, and corresponding
PriorityWeightAssoc setting, providing for an alternative approach to
establishing relative priority values between groups.
- Two new plugin APIs intended for sites to customize their Slurm
installations: cli_filter and site_factor.
Thank you to all customers, partners, and community members who
contributed to getting this release done.
As with past releases, the documentation available at
https://slurm.schedmd.com has been updated to the 19.05 release. Past
versions are available in the archive. This release also marks the end
of support for the 17.11 release. The 18.08 release will remain
supported up until the 20.02 release in February, but will stop
receiving as frequent updates, and bug-fixes will be targeted for the
19.05 maintenance releases going forward.
