How can I attach to a running Slurm job

To attach to a running Slurm job, use srun --pty --jobid YOUR-JOBID bash. This will give you a shell on the first node of your job and you can run top, nvidia-smi, etc. to check your job.

This is an alternative to SSH-ing into your node.

Using srun to attach to a job is the only way to see the correct GPU if you have multiple GPU jobs running on a single node as SSH will always get you into last modified cgroup which might not be the job / GPUs you are looking for.
