Checking job status

There are two methods to check your job status.

Method 1: show_job

We provide a show_job script. This script groups information, filters, sorts, and provides statistics to provide a clean, tidy, and user-friendly output.

$ show_job

                      *************************************************
                      *               MY JOB SUMMARY                  *

                      *************************************************

                        User ID                                masusr

                        Num of Submitted Jobs                       0
                        Num of Running Jobs                         0
                        Num of Pending Jobs                         0
                        Num of CPU Cores                            0
                      -------------------------------------------------


                      *************************************************
                      *               Job Details on m3               *

JOBID          JOB NAME     Project         QOS      STATE    RUNNING      TOTAL   NODE                   DETAILS
                                                                 TIME       TIME
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hint

To check the status of a single job use show_job [JOBID].

Method 2: Slurm commands

To display all of your running/pending jobs use squeue -u `whoami`.

Hint

whoami returns your M3 username, and is a handy shortcut.

$ squeue -u `whoami`
         JOBID PARTITION     NAME     USER ST       TIME  NODES NODELIST(REASON)

If you want to view the status of a single job

$ scontrol show job [JOBID]
