sinfo is a scheduler command that shows info about SLURM nodes and partitions.


Documentation is available on the system using the command

$ man sinfo


Get an overview of the nodes on Bessemer:

$ sinfo -N

This shows every node in the cluster. Some of these nodes may be reserved/purchased for specific research groups and hence may not be available for general use.

Get an overview of the partitions on Bessemer:

$ sinfo -a

As Bessemer has non-homogenous nodes you can list more information by formatting the output, e.g.:

$ sinfo -o "%P %l %c %D "  # PARTITION TIMELIMIT CPUS NODES
