Technical specifications of the High Performance Computing (HPC) environment on Gearshift


Key ingredients of the High Performance Computing (HPC) environment of the Gearshift cluster

Virtual Servers

  • Jumphosts: airlock
  • User Interfaces (UIs): gearshift
  • Deploy Admin Interfaces (DAIs): sugarsnax
  • Sys Admin Interfaces (SAIs): imperator
  • Compute Nodes: gs-vcompute01, gs-vcompute02, gs-vcompute03, gs-vcompute04, gs-vcompute05, gs-vcompute06, gs-vcompute07, gs-vcompute08, gs-vcompute09, gs-vcompute10

Shared Storage

A Logical File System (LFS) is usually a piece of a larger Physical File System (PFS) that serves a specific need for a specific user group. In case it as a network file system you could call it a share. In addition to LFS-ses for home dirs and the centrally deployed software and reference data the Gearshift HPC cluster has access to the following LFS-ses:

  • Available tmp LFS-ses: tmp01
  • Available prm LFS-ses: prm01, prm03
  • Available arc LFS-ses: None
