flux uptime


The flux-uptime command displays the following information about the current Flux instance, on one or two lines:

  • The current wall clock time.

  • The broker state. See BROKER STATES.

  • The elapsed time the Flux instance has been running, in RFC 23 Flux Standard Duration format. If the local broker is not in run state, the elapsed time in the current state is reported instead.

  • The Flux instance owner. On a system instance, this is probably the flux user.

  • The Flux instance depth. If the Flux instance was not launched as a job within another Flux instance, the depth is zero.

  • The instance size. This is the total number of brokers, which is usually also the number of nodes.

  • The number of drained nodes, if greater than zero. Drained nodes are not eligible to run new jobs, although they may be online, and may currently be running a job.

  • The number of offline nodes, if greater than zero. A node is offline if its broker is not connected to the instance overlay network.

  • A notice if job submission is disabled on all queues.

  • A notice if scheduling is disabled.



The local broker is trying to connect to its overlay network parent, or is waiting for the parent to complete initialization and reach quorum state.


The local broker is waiting for the rc1 script to complete locally.


All brokers are waiting for a configured number of brokers to reach quorum state. The default quorum is the instance size. A Flux system instance typically defines the quorum size to 1.


Flux is fully up and running.


Cleanup scripts are executing. This state appears on the rank 0 broker only.


The local broker is waiting for its overlay network children to finalize and disconnect.


The local broker is waiting for the rc3 script to complete locally.
