No print contents in slurm.out files

3 views (last 30 days)
Hey guys! I am running MATLAB programs on the HPC with slurm.
And I found that all the output that is supposed to show up in the command line are stored in the slurm-xxxx.out file, which is really cumbersome as my programs print a lot things.
Like this.
Is there anyway to avoid those output except for commenting all the fprint and disp?
I tried "-nodisplay -nodesktop -nosplash -batch" but the output is still there.
Thanks a lot!

I can't test this as I don't currently have access to a SLURM cluster with MATLAB on it. I guess you submit jobs using the sbatch command? As far as I know, you can suppress all standard output by adding the following to your sbatch command
sbatch --output=/dev/null --error=/dev/null
Take care to ensure that this doesn't get rid of output that's important! This flushes away all of that potentially useful output.
