We’ve just added a new software package called Singularity to all hosts running our Ubuntu Linux Platform, including our Slurm Compute Cluster.
We recently purchased 7 new nodes for our Slurm Compute Cluster. 4 of these are available to use now. The remaining 3 will be available soon. We’ve also repurposed 3 nodes from our old SGE Compute Cluster. Read on for more details.
We’ve made a wee change to hopefully improve the performance of the OpenBLAS linear algebra library on our newer Linux hosts, including our newest Slurm compute nodes. Read on to find out more.
We’ve recently made one of our Linux compute hosts available as a “walk-in” host for all staff & PhD students in the School of Physics & Astronomy. It’s called staffrun01. Read on to find out more about how to use it.
