[slurm-users] GPU jobs not running correctly

What SLURM version are you running?

What are the #SLURM directives in the batch script? (or the sbatch

When the single GPU jobs are pending, what's the output of 'scontrol show
job JOBID'?

What are the node definitions in slurm.conf, and the lines in gres.conf?

Are the nodes all the same host platform (motherboard)?

We have P100s, TitanVs, Titan RTXs, Quadro RTX 6000s, 3090s, V100s, DGX 1s,
A6000s, and A40s, with a mix of single and dual-root platforms, and haven't
seen this problem with SLURM 20.02.6 or earlier versions.
