Cluster Computing

Welcome to the CfN wiki for cluster computing resources.

CfN runs a high-performance computing cluster, consisting of 576 Intel Xeon compute cores with a maximum 62GB RAM per job (possibly extensible), a 10Gb high-speed internal network, over 200TB of RAID-6 high-speed storage, and a tape backup system.

The administrator is Michael Stauffer

Please let us know of any issues with this wiki.

Searching the wiki

You can search the entire wiki (e.g. for an error message you got) in the search box in the upper-right of the window.

TIP only search for part of an error message, i.e. parts that seem unique to the error and don't include things like compute node names or filenames.

TIP Use quotes to search for a complete phrase, e.g. “memory allocation”
