Information about one event trigger including trigger ID, type, time offset, etc. See slurm.h for details.
A data structure including an array of trigger_info structures plus their count. See slurm.h for details.


slurm_set_trigger Create a new event trigger. Note that any trigger ID specified in trigger_info is unused.

slurm_clear_trigger Clear or remove existing event triggers. If a trigger ID is specified then only that one trigger will be cleared. If a job ID or node name is specified, then all triggers associated with that resource are cleared.

slurm_get_triggers Get information about all currently configured event triggers. To avoid memory leaks, always follow this with a call to the slurm_free_trigger function.

slurm_free_trigger Release the memory allocated for the array returned by the slurm_get_triggers function.

slurm_init_trigger_msg Initialize the data structure to be used in subsequent call to slurm_set_trigger or slurm_clear_trigger.


SLURM_SUCCESS is returned on successful completion, otherwise an error code is returned as described below.


EINVAL Invalid argument

ESLURM_ACCESS_DENIED Attempt by non-privileged user to set an event trigger.

ESLURM_ALREADY_DONE Attempt to set an event trigger for a job which has already completed.

ESLURM_INVALID_NODE_NAME Attempt to set an event trigger for a node name which is invalid.

ESLURM_INVALID_JOB_ID the specified job id does not exist.

ESLURM_TRIGGER_DUP there is already an identical event trigger.
