sattach - Attach to a Slurm job step.



sattach [options] <jobid.stepid>


sattach attaches to a running Slurm job step. By attaching, it makes available the IO streams of all of the tasks of a running Slurm job step. It also suitable for use with a parallel debugger like TotalView.


-h, --help Display help information and exit.

--input-filter[=]<task number>
--output-filter[=]<task number>
--error-filter[=]<task number>
  Only transmit standard input to a single task, or print the standard output or standard error from a single task. The filtering is performed locally in sattach.

-l, --label
  Prepend each line of task standard output or standard error with the task number of its origin.

  Contacts the slurmctld to obtain the task layout information for the job step, prints the task layout information, and then exits without attaching to the job step.

--pty Execute task zero in pseudo terminal. Not compatible with the --input-filter, --output-filter, or --error-filter options. Notes: The terminal size and resize events are ignored by sattach. Proper operation requires that the job step be initiated by srun using the --pty option. Not currently supported on AIX platforms.

-Q, --quiet
  Suppress informational messages from sattach. Errors will still be displayed.

-u, --usage
  Display brief usage message and exit.

-V, --version
  Display Slurm version number and exit.

-v, --verbose
  Increase the verbosity of sattach’s informational messages. Multiple -v’s will further increase sattach’s verbosity.


Upon startup, salloc will read and handle the options set in the following environment variables. Note: Command line options always override environment variables settings.

SLURM_CONF The location of the Slurm configuration file.
SLURM_EXIT_ERROR Specifies the exit code generated when a Slurm error occurs (e.g. invalid options). This can be used by a script to distinguish application exit codes from various Slurm error conditions.
