ACTnowHPC scheduler

The ACTnowHPC system uses SLURM as the workload manager.  To ensure fair access to all resources, you will not have direct access to the compute nodes, but must run all jobs through the scheduler.

Choosing your partition

The scheduler has multiple partitions (this is often referred to as a queue in other systems).  These partitions have different hardware characteristics.  

Each partition has a different billing rate, and you can find your cost for each partition when you login to the customer portal. GPU and Phi nodes will be coming online soon. Watch this space for more information.
