Our cluster contains nodes with the following specs:
There is slow scratch space mounted to
/scratch. It is a ZFS pool consisting of 10x 2TB 7200RPM SAS drives connected via a LSI 9211-8i and is made up of 5 mirrored VDEVs, which is similar to a RAID10. The servers uplink is 1G ethernet.
Scratch space is mounted on the linux.cs nodes as well as all Slurm compute nodes.
This is expected. The maximum speed this server will ever be able to achieve is 1Gb/s because of its single 1G ethernet uplink. If this cluster gains in popularity we plan on upgrading the network and storage server.
To find out what partitions we offer, checkout the sinfo command.
As of December, 2015 we have will have at least 2 partitions in our cluster; 'debug' and 'general'.
|debug||The partition your job will be submitted to if none is specified. The purpose of this partition is to make sure your code is running as it should before submitting a long running job to the general queue.|
|general|| All jobs that have been thoroughly tested can be submitted here. This partition will have access to more nodes and will process most of the jobs. If you need to use the
