Slurm has many prerequisites for building, see what I believe is the full
If you have recent Xeon or EPYC CPUs, you should also consider the number
of NUMA domains per socket. Use numactl -H to see what you've got.
Regarding slurmd -C and multiple NUMA domain per socket, there's a small
bug being sorted out in https://bugs.schedmd.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11434
It may be beneficial for HPC applications to enable Sub NUMA Cluster (SNC)
in BIOS, see
