SUSE SLES12 Security Update : slurm_20_11 / pdsh (SUSE-SU-2021:0773-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 147801


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Fix race in the slurmctld backup controller which prevents it to clean up allocations on nodes properly after failing over (bsc#1084917). Handled %license in a backward compatible manner.

Add a 'Recommends: slurm-munge' to slurm-slurmdbd.

Shield comments between script snippets with a %{!?nil:...} to avoid them being interpreted as scripts - in which case the update level is passed as argument (see chapter 'Shared libraries' in: (bsc#1100850).

Update from 17.11.5 to 17.11.7

Fix security issue in handling of username and gid fields CVE-2018-10995 and bsc#1095508 what implied an update from 17.11.5 to 17.11.7 Highlights of 17.11.6 :

- CRAY - Add slurmsmwd to the contribs/cray dir

- PMIX - Added the direct connect authentication.

- Prevent the backup slurmctld from losing the active/available node features list on takeover.

- Be able to force power_down of cloud node even if in power_save state.

- Notify srun and ctld when unkillable stepd exits.

- Numerous fixes - check 'NEWS' file.

- Fixes daemoniziation in newly introduced slurmsmwd daemon.

Rename :

- remain in sync with commit messages which introduced that file

Avoid running pretrans scripts when running in an instsys: there may be not much installed, yet. pretrans code should be done in lua, this way, it will be executed by the rpm-internal lua interpreter and not be passed to a shell which may not be around at the time this scriptlet is run (bsc#1090292).

Add requires for slurm-sql to the slurmdbd package.

Package READMEs for pam and pam_slurm_adopt.

Use the new %%license directive for COPYING file. Fix interaction with systemd: systemd expects that a daemonizing process doesn't go away until the PID file with it PID of the daemon has bee written (bsc#1084125).

Make sure systemd services get restarted only when all packages are in a consistent state, not in the middle of an 'update' transaction (bsc#1088693). Since the %postun scripts that run on update are from the old package they cannot be changed - thus we work around the restart breakage.

fixed wrong log file location in slurmdbd.conf and fixed pid location for slurmdbd and made slurm-slurmdbd depend on slurm config which provides the dir /var/run/slurm (bsc#1086859).

added comment for (bsc#1085606)

Fix security issue in accounting_storage/mysql plugin by always escaping strings within the slurmdbd. CVE-2018-7033 (bsc#1085240).

Update slurm to v17.11.5 (FATE#325451) Highlights of 17.11 :

- Support for federated clusters to manage a single work-flow across a set of clusters.

- Support for heterogeneous job allocations (various processor types, memory sizes, etc. by job component).
Support for heterogeneous job steps within a single MPI_COMM_WORLD is not yet supported for most configurations.

- X11 support is now fully integrated with the main Slurm code. Remove any X11 plugin configured in your plugstack.conf file to avoid errors being logged about conflicting options.

- Added new advanced reservation flag of 'flex', which permits jobs requesting the reservation to begin prior to the reservation's start time and use resources inside or outside of the reservation. A typical use case is to prevent jobs not explicitly requesting the reservation from using those reserved resources rather than forcing jobs requesting the reservation to use those resources in the time frame reserved.

- The sprio command has been modified to report a job's priority information for every partition the job has been submitted to.

- Group ID lookup performed at job submit time to avoid lookup on all compute nodes. Enable with PrologFlags=SendGIDs configuration parameter.

- Slurm commands and daemons dynamically link to instead of statically linking. This dramatically reduces the footprint of Slurm.

- In switch plugin, added plugin_id symbol to plugins and wrapped switch_jobinfo_t with dynamic_plugin_data_t in interface calls in order to pass switch information between clusters with different switch types.

- Changed default ProctrackType to cgroup.

- Changed default sched_min_interval from 0 to 2 microseconds.

- Added new 'scontrol write batch_script ' command to fetch a job's batch script. Removed the ability to see the script as part of the 'scontrol -dd show job' command.

- Add new 'billing' TRES which allows jobs to be limited based on the job's billable TRES calculated by the job's partition's TRESBillingWeights.

- Regular user use of 'scontrol top' command is now disabled. Use the configuration parameter 'SchedulerParameters=enable_user_top' to enable that functionality. The configuration parameter 'SchedulerParameters=disable_user_top' will be silently ignored.

- Change default to let pending jobs run outside of reservation after reservation is gone to put jobs in held state. Added NO_HOLD_JOBS_AFTER_END reservation flag to use old default. Support for PMIx v2.0 as well as UCX support.

- Remove plugins for obsolete MPI stacks :

- lam

- mpich1_p4

- mpich1_shmem

- mvapich

- Numerous fixes - check 'NEWS' file. Replaced by sed script.

Fix some rpmlint warnings.

moved config files to slurm-config package (FATE#324574).

Moved slurmstepd and man page into slurm-node due to slurmd dependency

Moved config files into slurm-node

Moved slurmd rc scripts into slurm-node

Made slurm-munge require slurm-plugins instead of slurm itself

- slurm-node suggested slurm-munge, causing the whole slurm to be installed. The slurm-plugins seems to be a more base class (FATE#324574).

split up light wight slurm-node package for deployment on nodes (FATE#324574).

Package so-versioned libs separately. libslurm is expected to change more frequently and thus is packaged separately from libpmi.

Updated to 17.02.9 to fix CVE-2017-15566 (bsc#1065697). Changes in 17.0.9

Enable lua API package build.

Add a recommends for slurm-munge to the slurm package: This is way, the munge auth method is available and slurm works out of the box.

Create /var/lib/slurm as StateSaveLocation directory. /tmp is dangerous.

Create slurm user/group in preinstall script.

Keep %{_libdir}/libpmi* and %{_libdir}/mpi_pmi2* on SUSE.

Fix build with and without OHCP_BUILD define.

Fix build for systemd and non-systemd.

Updated to 16-05-5 - equvalent to OpenHPC 1.2.

- Fix issue with resizing jobs and limits not be kept track of correctly.

- BGQ - Remove redeclaration of job_read_lock.

- BGQ - Tighter locks around structures when nodes/cables change state.

- Make it possible to change CPUsPerTask with scontrol.

- Make it so scontrol update part qos= will take away a partition QOS from a partition.

- Backfill scheduling properly synchronized with Cray Node Health Check. Prior logic could result in highest priority job getting improperly postponed.

- Make it so daemons also support TopologyParam=NoInAddrAny.

- If scancel is operating on large number of jobs and RPC responses from slurmctld daemon are slow then introduce a delay in sending the cancel job requests from scancel in order to reduce load on slurmctld.

- Remove redundant logic when updating a job's task count.

- MySQL - Fix querying jobs with reservations when the id's have rolled.

- Perl - Fix use of uninitialized variable in slurm_job_step_get_pids.

- Add logic so that slurmstepd can be launched under valgrind.

- Increase buffer size to read /proc/*/stat files.

- Remove the SchedulerParameters option of 'assoc_limit_continue', making it the default value. Add option of 'assoc_limit_stop'. If 'assoc_limit_stop' is set and a job cannot start due to association limits, then do not attempt to initiate any lower priority jobs in that partition. Setting this can decrease system throughput and utlization, but avoid potentially starving larger jobs by preventing them from launching indefinitely.

- Update a node's socket and cores per socket counts as needed after a node boot to reflect configuration changes which can occur on KNL processors. Note that the node's total core count must not change, only the distribution of cores across varying socket counts (KNL NUMA nodes treated as sockets by Slurm).

- Rename partition configuration from 'Shared' to 'OverSubscribe'. Rename salloc, sbatch, srun option from '--shared' to '--oversubscribe'. The old options will continue to function. Output field names also changed in scontrol, sinfo, squeue and sview.

- Add SLURM_UMASK environment variable to user job.

- knl_conf: Added new configuration parameter of CapmcPollFreq.

- Cleanup two minor Coverity warnings.

- Make it so the tres units in a job's formatted string are converted like they are in a step.

- Correct partition's MaxCPUsPerNode enforcement when nodes are shared by multiple partitions.

- node_feature/knl_cray - Prevent slurmctld GRES errors for 'hbm' references.

- Display thread name instead of thread id and remove process name in stderr logging for 'thread_id' LogTimeFormat.

- Log IP address of bad incomming message to slurmctld.

- If a user requests tasks, nodes and ntasks-per-node and tasks-per-node/nodes != tasks print warning and ignore ntasks-per-node.

- Release CPU 'owner' file locks.

- Update seff to fix warnings with ncpus, and list slurm-perlapi dependency in spec file.

- Allow QOS timelimit to override partition timelimit when EnforcePartLimits is set to all/any.

- Make it so qsub will do a 'basename' on a wrapped command for the output and error files.

- Add logic so that slurmstepd can be launched under valgrind.

- Increase buffer size to read /proc/*/stat files.

- Prevent job stuck in configuring state if slurmctld daemon restarted while PrologSlurmctld is running. Also re-issue burst_buffer/pre-load operation as needed.

- Move test for job wait reason value of BurstBufferResources and BurstBufferStageIn later in the scheduling logic.

- Document which srun options apply to only job, only step, or job and step allocations.

- Use more compatible function to get thread name (>= 2.6.11).

- Make it so the extern step uses a reverse tree when cleaning up.

- If extern step doesn't get added into the proctrack plugin make sure the sleep is killed.

- Add web links to Slurm Diamond Collectors (from Harvard University) and collectd (from EDF).

- Add job_submit plugin for the 'reboot' field.

- Make some more Slurm constants (INFINITE, NO_VAL64, etc.) available to job_submit/lua plugins.

- Send in a -1 for a taskid into spank_task_post_fork for the extern_step.

- MYSQL - Sightly better logic if a job completion comes in with an end time of 0.

- task/cgroup plugin is configured with ConstrainRAMSpace=yes, then set soft memory limit to allocated memory limit (previously no soft limit was set).

- Streamline when schedule() is called when running with message aggregation on batch script completes.

- Fix incorrect casting when [un]packing derived_ec on slurmdb_job_rec_t.

- Document that persistent burst buffers can not be created or destroyed using the salloc or srun --bb options.

- Add support for setting the SLURM_JOB_ACCOUNT, SLURM_JOB_QOS and SLURM_JOB_RESERVAION environment variables are set for the salloc command. Document the same environment variables for the salloc, sbatch and srun commands in their man pages.

- Fix issue where sacctmgr load cluster.cfg wouldn't load associations that had a partition in them.

- Don't return the extern step from sstat by default.

- In sstat print 'extern' instead of 4294967295 for the extern step.

- Make advanced reservations work properly with core specialization.

- slurmstepd modified to pre-load all relevant plugins at startup to avoid the possibility of modified plugins later resulting in inconsistent API or data structures and a failure of slurmstepd.

- Export functions from parse_time.c in

- Export unit convert functions from slurm_protocol_api.c in

- Fix scancel to allow multiple steps from a job to be cancelled at once.

- Update and expand upgrade guide (in Quick Start Administrator web page).

- burst_buffer/cray: Requeue, but do not hold a job which fails the pre_run operation.

- Insure reported expected job start time is not in the past for pending jobs.

- Add support for PMIx v2. Required for FATE#316379.

Setting 'download_files' service to mode='localonly' and adding source tarball. (Required for Factory).


- Remove the 1024-character limit on lines in batch scripts. task/affinity: Disable core-level task binding if more CPUs required than available cores.

- Preemption/gang scheduling: If a job is suspended at slurmctld restart or reconfiguration time, then leave it suspended rather than resume+suspend.

- Don't use lower weight nodes for job allocation when topology/tree used.

- Don't allow user specified reservation names to disrupt the normal reservation sequeuece numbering scheme.

- Avoid hard-link/copy of script/environment files for job arrays. Use the master job record file for all tasks of the job array. NOTE: Job arrays submitted to Slurm version 15.08.6 or later will fail if the slurmctld daemon is downgraded to an earlier version of Slurm.

- In slurmctld log file, log duplicate job ID found by slurmd. Previously was being logged as prolog/epilog failure.

- If a job is requeued while in the process of being launch, remove it's job ID from slurmd's record of active jobs in order to avoid generating a duplicate job ID error when launched for the second time (which would drain the node).

- Cleanup messages when handling job script and environment variables in older directory structure formats.

- Prevent triggering gang scheduling within a partition if configured with PreemptType=partition_prio and PreemptMode=suspend,gang.

- Decrease parallelism in job cancel request to prevent denial of service when cancelling huge numbers of jobs.

- If all ephemeral ports are in use, try using other port numbers.

- Prevent 'scontrol update job' from updating jobs that have already finished.

- Show requested TRES in 'squeue -O tres' when job is pending.

- Backfill scheduler: Test association and QOS node limits before reserving resources for pending job.

- Many bug fixes.

Use source services to download package.

package netloc_to_topology where avialable.

Package documentation.

version 15.08.3

- Many new features and bug fixes. See NEWS file

update files list accordingly

fix wrong end of line in some files

version 14.11.8

- Many bug fixes. See NEWS file

update files list accordingly

add missing systemd requirements

add missing rclink

version 14.03.9

- Many bug fixes. See NEWS file

add systemd support

version 14.03.6

- Added support for native Slurm operation on Cray systems (without ALPS).

- Added partition configuration parameters AllowAccounts, AllowQOS, DenyAccounts and DenyQOS to provide greater control over use.

- Added the ability to perform load based scheduling.
Allocating resources to jobs on the nodes with the largest number if idle CPUs.

- Added support for reserving cores on a compute node for system services (core specialization)

- Add mechanism for job_submit plugin to generate error message for srun, salloc or sbatch to stderr.

- Support for Postgres database has long since been out of date and problematic, so it has been removed entirely.
If you would like to use it the code still exists in <= 2.6, but will not be included in this and future versions of the code.

- Added new structures and support for both server and cluster resources.

- Significant performance improvements, especially with respect to job array support.

update files list

update to version 2.6.7

- Support for job arrays, which increases performance and ease of use for sets of similar jobs.

- Job profiling capability added to record a wide variety of job characteristics for each task on a user configurable periodic basis. Data currently available includes CPU use, memory use, energy use, Infiniband network use, Lustre file system use, etc.

- Support for MPICH2 using PMI2 communications interface with much greater scalability.

- Prolog and epilog support for advanced reservations.

- Much faster throughput for job step execution with
--exclusive option. The srun process is notified when resources become available rather than periodic polling.

- Support improved for Intel MIC (Many Integrated Core) processor.

- Advanced reservations with hostname and core counts now supports asymmetric reservations (e.g. specific different core count for each node).

- External sensor plugin infrastructure added to record power consumption, temperature, etc.

- Improved performance for high-throughput computing.

- MapReduce+ support (launches ~1000x faster, runs ~10x faster).

- Added 'MaxCPUsPerNode' partition configuration parameter. This can be especially useful to schedule GPUs. For example a node can be associated with two Slurm partitions (e.g. 'cpu' and 'gpu') and the partition/queue 'cpu' could be limited to only a subset of the node's CPUs, insuring that one or more CPUs would be available to jobs in the 'gpu' partition/queue.

version 2.5.7

- Fix for linking to the select/cray plugin to not give warning about undefined variable.

- Add missing symbols to the xlator.h

- Avoid placing pending jobs in AdminHold state due to backfill scheduler interactions with advanced reservation.

- Accounting - Fix minor initialization error.

- POE - Correct logic to support srun network instances count with POE.

- POE - With the srun --launch-cmd option, report proper task count when the --cpus-per-task option is used without the

--ntasks option.

- POE - Fix logic binding tasks to CPUs.

- sview - Fix race condition where new information could of slipped past the node tab and we didn't notice.

- Accounting - Fix an invalid memory read when slurmctld sends data about start job to slurmdbd.

- If a prolog or epilog failure occurs, drain the node rather than setting it down and killing all of its jobs.

- Priority/multifactor - Avoid underflow in half-life calculation.

- POE - pack missing variable to allow fanout (more than 32 nodes)

- Prevent clearing reason field for pending jobs. This bug was introduced in v2.5.5 (see 'Reject job at submit time ...').

- BGQ - Fix issue with preemption on sub-block jobs where a job would kill all preemptable jobs on the midplane instead of just the ones it needed to.

- switch/nrt - Validate dynamic window allocation size.

- BGQ - When --geo is requested do not impose the default conn_types.

- RebootNode logic - Defers (rather than forgets) reboot request with job running on the node within a reservation.

- switch/nrt - Correct network_id use logic. Correct support for user sn_all and sn_single options.

- sched/backfill - Modify logic to reduce overhead under heavy load.

- Fix job step allocation with --exclusive and --hostlist option.

- Select/cons_res - Fix bug resulting in error of 'cons_res: sync loop not progressing, holding job #'

- checkpoint/blcr - Reset max_nodes from zero to NO_VAL on job restart.

- launch/poe - Fix for hostlist file support with repeated host names.

- priority/multifactor2 - Prevent possible divide by zero.

-- srun - Don't check for executable if --test-only flag is used.

- energy - On a single node only use the last task for gathering energy. Since we don't currently track energy usage per task (only per step). Otherwise we get double the energy.

version 2.5.4

- Support for Intel&Acirc;&reg; Many Integrated Core (MIC) processors.

- User control over CPU frequency of each job step.

- Recording power usage information for each job.

- Advanced reservation of cores rather than whole nodes.

- Integration with IBM's Parallel Environment including POE (Parallel Operating Environment) and NRT (Network Resource Table) API.

- Highly optimized throughput for serial jobs in a new 'select/serial' plugin.
