I ordered 120MBit/s, but speed according T-Online speedtest is as follows:

I attribute the drop from the bought speed to peering between Telekom and Cablesurf.

Checking my Unitymedia connection with T-Online speedtest gives:


slurmd confused of pid-file

I wrote on SLURM used on Ubuntu here. As I moved to Arch Linux I of course use the fine AUR package slurm-llnl maintained by Gordian Edenhofer.

After upgrading to version 16.05.7-1 I noticed the following: If slurmd is started by systemd then the pid-file specified for systemd in /lib/systemd/system/slurmd.service (PIDFile) should match the pid-file location (SlurmdPidFile) given in /etc/slurm-llnl/slurm.conf.

By the way, if one gets an error

slurm_receive_msg: Zero Bytes were transmitted or received

check your date and time of your nodes.
