While you're looking at this, make sure you don't set UnkillableStepTimeout to a value larger than 126 seconds:

Hi All

Have been reading on the archive hoping to implement unkillablesteptimeout and unkillablesteprogram to the slurm
But I'm kind of confuse with it application

  1.  I presume UnkillableStepTimeout is set in slurm.conf. and it act as a timer to trigger UnkillableStepProgram
  2.  UnkillableStepProgram   can be use to send email or reboot compute node - question is how do we configure it ?

scontrol show config | grep -i kill
KillOnBadExit           = 1
KillWait                = 30 sec
UnkillableStepProgram   = (null)
UnkillableStepTimeout   = 300 sec

Please advise
