[slurm-users] Running an MPI job across two partitions

When you say “distinct compute nodes,” are they at least on the same network fabric?

If so, the first thing I’d try would be to create a new partition that encompasses all of the nodes of the other two partitions.

Subject: [slurm-users] Running an MPI job across two partitions


I'm running Slurm 19.05 version.

Is there any way to launch an MPI job on a group of distributed  nodes from two or more partitions, where each partition has distinct compute nodes?

I've looked at the heterogeneous job support but it creates two-separate jobs.

If there is no such capability with the current Slurm, I'd like to hear any recommendations or suggestions.
