Specifies a slurm job ID. A value of zero implies all jobs.
Specifies the double pointer to the structure to be created and filled with the time of the last node update, a record count, and detailed information about each job step specified. Detailed job step information is written to fixed sized records and includes: job_id, step_id, node names, etc. See slurm.h for full details on the data structure's contents.
Specifies the pointer to the structure created by the function slurm_get_job_steps.
Specifies a pointer to a single job step records from the job_step_info_msg_pptr data structure.
Print one record per line if non-zero.
Specifies the file to print data to.
Job filtering flags, may be ORed. Information about job steps in partitions that are configured as hidden and partitions that the user's group is unable to utilize are not reported by default. The SHOW_ALL flag will cause information about job steps in all partitions to be displayed.

Specifies a slurm job step ID. A value of zero implies all job steps.
For all of the following informational calls, if update_time is equal to or greater than the last time changes where made to that information, new information is not returned. Otherwise all the configuration. job, node, or partition records are returned.


slurm_free_job_step_info_response_msg Release the storage generated by the slurm_get_job_steps function.

slurm_get_job_steps Loads into details about job steps that satisfy the job_id and/or step_id specifications provided if the data has been updated since the update_time specified.

slurm_print_job_step_info Prints the contents of the data structure describing a single job step records from the data loaded by the lurm_get_job_steps function.

slurm_print_job_step_info_msg Prints the contents of the data structure describing all job step records loaded by the lurm_get_job_steps function.


On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and Slurm error code is set appropriately.


SLURM_NO_CHANGE_IN_DATA Data has not changed since update_time.

SLURM_PROTOCOL_VERSION_ERROR Protocol version has changed, re-link your code.

SLURM_PROTOCOL_SOCKET_IMPL_TIMEOUT Timeout in communicating with Slurm controller.

These functions are included in the libslurm library, which must be linked to your process for use (e.g. "cc -lslurm myprog.c").

Some data structures contain index values to cross-reference each other. If the show_flags argument is not set to SHOW_ALL when getting this data, these index values will be invalid.

The slurm_hostlist_ functions can be used to convert Slurm node list expressions into a collection of individual node names.
