HPC cluster information

HPC64 is the high performance computing cluster that serves to faculty and students among many departments. It is an attempt to combine old and new clusters under one umbrella. The main purpose is to form a basis for extensible and manageable high performance computing cluster for Brandeis University.

Architecturally it is based on Rocks clusters version 5.1 and is 64-bit Linux. However because of its multi group and owner nature, HPC64 required some customization. Rocks 5.1 userguide can used as a main source of information, but the customizations will require some slight changes. Our cluster uses Sun's grid engine technology for resource allocation. The visible part of this technology to the end user is the qsub command. Proper use of cluster requires you to understand little bit about qsub command.

Best practices

Our aim is to publish best practices and experiences about research and cluster computing.
