[slurm-users] Reset TMPDIR for All Jobs

I was wanted to set TMPDIR from /tmp to a per job directory I create in local /scratch/$SLURM_JOB_ID (for example)

This bug suggests I should be able to do this in a task-prolog.


However adding the following to task-prolog doesn't seem to affect the variables the job script is running with.

unset TMPDIR
export TMPDIR=/scratch/$SLURM_JOB_ID

It does work if it is done in the job script, rather than the task-prolog.

Am I missing something?
