Using CycleCloud and Slurm - jobs stuck in pending state RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have some software that uses Slurm to submit jobs to a queue and it works as expected on our on-site cluster as well as a variety of our clients' Slurm setups.

    The issue we are seeing is that when we submit a multi-node job on CycleCloud's Slurm, the correct number of resources spin up, however, the jobs never seem to transition into a "Running" state. They remain stuck in "Pending(Resources)" state.

    I have run a test script that does the bare minimum to submit multi-node jobs. These properly spin up the appropriate number of resources and run the job. So, clearly, something in our configuration must be off.

    Can anyone share some pointers of where to track reasons for jobs getting stuck in a pending state?
