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.
|Partition||CPU||Freq||Cores per node||Memory per node||Accelerators||Notes|
|hsw-fdr||2x Intel Xeon E5-2650v3 "haswell"||2.3GHz||20||64GB||none||Default time limit is 5 min, maximum is 24 hours. If you need longer running jobs contact us at email@example.com|
|bw-fdr||2x Intel Xeon E5-2550v4||2.2GHz||24||64GB||none||Default time limit is 5 min, maximum is 24 hours. If you need longer running jobs contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org|
