[slurm-users] Picocluster 5H Jetson Nano - SLURM A57+GPU

I am hoping to learn more about managing jobs and configuring SLURM

I have a Picocluster 5H which has 5 units of Jetson Nano.

Each Jetson Nano is a Arm A57 (Quad core) + and Nvidia Maxwell GPU

I am using one of the node as head node with the other four as compute nodes

The OS is Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and I believe the SLURM version for it is at
SLURM version 17.11.2

As the cluster nodes have very little RAM and storage, I am hoping to use
as much software out of the box (that comes with Ubuntu) as possible rather
than set up a development environment to build the latest of everything.

Has anyone run the stock standard SLURM on Ubuntu 18.04 with a Jetson Nano
? I am particularly interested in the setup/configuration so that all the
resources (cores/RAM/GPU) are fully at the disposal of SLURM. Are there any
special considerations of GRES for the Jetson Nano's Maxwell GPU ?

Given my hardware configuration, are there any important features I will be
missing out on if I were to continue using SLURM 17.11.2 ?

Kind regards
