Pardon our Dust
Hi! This website is a work-in-progress. We had to shut down our previous user documentation site, so please pardon our virtual dust while we continue working to construct this new site. If you can't find content from our previous site or you have any other questions, please reach out through our contact form.
Getting Access to the HPCC
For potential users with an MSU NetID, accounts must be requested by a MSU tenure-track faculty member. Researchers at partner institutions should use the mechanism specified by their institution's agreement with MSU. For more information, see: Obtain an HPCC Account and on the ICER website.
CPU and GPU Time Limits
Non-buyin users are limited to 500,000 CPU hours (30,000,000 minutes) and 10,000 GPU hours (600,000 minutes) every year (from January 1st to December 31st). More information is available at Job Policies.
With each cluster purchase, ICER offers researchers the oppportunity to purchase buy-in nodes for priority access to the cluster.
If you have questions and couldn’t find answers in this documentation, please submit a ticket.
Online Helpdesk Hours
Monday and Thursday, 1-2pm at our ICER Public Help Desk Channel . More information about virtual support is available.
HPCC Workshops and Training
Our monthly workshops and our D2L training materials cover introductions to Linux, HPCC, and some popular software tools. Check out our training calendar for scheduled events and our course content available on Desire2Learn.
We encourage HPCC users to acknowledge ICER and MSU in publications based on work that was done with HPCC resources. A sample statement: "This work was supported in part through computational resources and services provided by the Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research at Michigan State University."
Let us know that we have been referenced, and we will link to your publication on our publication site, which will further increase the visibility of your work.
