This was an annoying change:

 -- srun will no longer read in SLURM_CPUS_PER_TASK. This means you will
    implicitly have to specify --cpus-per-task on your srun calls, or set the
    new SRUN_CPUS_PER_TASK env var to accomplish the same thing.

Here one can find relevant discussion:


I'll attach our cli-filter pre_submit function which works for us.
