Project description

Slurm JupyterLab Extension

A JupyterLab extension that interfaces with the Slurm Workload Manager, providing simple and intuitive controls for viewing and managing jobs on the queue.

Slurm Extension


  • JupyterLab >= 3.0
  • Node.js 14+
  • Slurm


This extension includes both a client-side JupyterLab extension and a server-side Jupyter notebook server extension. Install these using the command line with

pip install jupyterlab_slurm

If you are running Notebook 5.2 or earlier, enable the server extension by running

jupyter serverextension enable --py --sys-prefix jupyterlab_slurm

After launching JupyterLab, the extension can be found in the command palette under the name Slurm Queue Manager, and is listed under the HPC TOOLS section of the palette and the launcher.

Development install

As described in the JupyterLab documentation for a development install of the labextension you can run the following in this directory:

Setup a local slurm cluster

git clone
cd slurm-docker-cluster
git clone --branch lab3
cp jupyterlab-slurm/slurm_cluster/docker-compose.yml .
# from slurm-docker-cluster README
docker build -t slurm-docker-cluster:19.05.1 .
# if you encounter an error with the PGP key step
# update line 46 with gpg --keyserver ...
# this will build the jupyterlab image minimal-notebook with a slurm client
docker-compose build
# start the cluster
docker-compose up -d
# register the slurm cluster
# run munged on the jupyterlab instance to get the slurm commands to connect
docker-compose exec jupyterlab bash
runuser -u slurm -- munged
# test that squeue comes back with a header, if it gets stuck you can't connect

Install jupyterlab-slurm into your environment

docker-compose exec -u jovyan jupyterlab bash
cd /usr/local/jupyterlab-slurm/
# install jupyter_packaging which is a missing dependency
pip install jupyter_packaging
# this command takes a while the first it is run
pip install -e .
# point the labextension dev install at current dir
jupyter labextension develop --overwrite .

# rerun this if there are updates:
jlpm run build

Restart the jupyterlab docker container

docker compose restart jupyterlab

# rerun munged on the jupyterlab instance
docker compose exec jupyterlab bash
runuser -u slurm -- munged
