submit jobs to slurm with python

Project description

quick and dirty lib for submitting jobs to slurm via python2/python3.

from slurmpy import Slurm

s = Slurm("job-name", {"account": "my-account", "partition": "my-parition"})"""

The above will submit the job to sbatch automatically write the script to scripts/ and automatically write logs/{name}.err and logs/{name}.out. It will have today's date in the log and script names.

The script to run() can also contain $variables which are filled with the cmd_kwarg dict. E.g. echo $name could be filled with cmd_kwargs={'name': 'sally'}

A command can be tested (not sent to queue) by setting the _cmd are to run as e.g. "ls". The default is sbatch which submits jobs to slurm.


Each time slurmpy.Slurm().run() is called, it returns the job-id of the submitted job. This can then be sent to a subsequent job:

s = Slurm(), depends_on=[job_id])

to indicate that this job should not run until the the job with job_id has finished successfully.


pip install slurmpy --user
