Cluster resources

HPCC maintains several clusters. They are named according to the year of installation. Each cluster has very similar hardware with specific processors but has some variety in configuration, such as different coprocessors, memory capacity, or number of CPUs. However, with many different kinds of configurations, HPCC uses a single-queue system managed by SLURM, a resource management software. Jobs submitted to SLURM job queue can run on any possible nodes, unless there are specifications on cluster constraints. Users only have to specify resource requirements and our scheduler can assign your job to an appropriate cluster.

All clusters currently run CentOS 7 and use the SLURM resource manager. They are connected to each other with file systems through Infiniband. Your home, research, and scratch is available and identical on all nodes.

The following table lists nodes that are currently available to run jobs; jobs can be submitted from any of our dev-nodes.
