There is no charge for using these compute resources.
The Hazel cluster is a heterogeneous cluster that includes state-of-the-art equipment such as the newest CPUs, GPUs, and networking architecture while maintaining older resources as long as feasible. The cluster is an Intel Xeon based Linux cluster, and compute nodes include a mix of several generations of Intel Xeon processors primarily in dual-socket blade servers, some having attached GPUs.
Work is scheduled on the cluster using a queuing system (LSF). Various queues are available to all HPC accounts. Submitted jobs are placed in queues based on how long they will run and how many processor cores they will use.Resources may be specified according to:
Cluster monitoring: News, updates, outages, and maintenance schedules
Available software: Software packages and installed applications
Because of the dynamic nature of the cluster, the types and amounts of compute resources available are always in flux. There are currently:
Various queues are available with varying priority, time limit, and core limit.
See the cluster status pages for up-to-date specifics on the current number of nodes based on model, memory, or interconnect.
The types of GPU models are listed on the LSF resource page. For guidance on querying LSF to display the current resource limits available on each queue, see the LSF FAQ.
Please acknowledge compute resources as:
We acknowledge the computing resources provided by North Carolina State University High Performance Computing Services Core Facility (RRID:SCR_022168).
and acknowledge any significant user support resources as:
We also thank consultant name(s) for their assistance with (describe tasks such as porting, optimization, visualization, etc.).
If existing compute resources are inadequate for the needs of a project, there is an opportunity to purchase additional compute nodes or storage under the HPC Partner Program.
