How to View detailed job information when the job is already runningΒΆ

Once your batch job started execution (i.e. is in RUNNING state) your job script is copied to the slurm admin nodes and kept until the jobs finalizes - this prevents problems that might occur if the job script gets modified while the job is running. As a side-effect you can delete the job script without interfering the execution of the job.

If you accidentally removed or modified the job script of a running job, you can use the following command to query for the script that is actually used for executing the job:

scontrol -dd show job=<jobid> | less
