VRDC6405 users, listen up: migration to SSG

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We are preparing to take 6405 offline in order to integrate it into the new SSG cluster. Our intention is to have the SSG cluster available *before* we take 6405 offline. When taken offline, all data from /rdcprojects.vrdc6405 will be available on vrdc6402, using the same path (i.e., if you coded it as /rdcprojects.vrdc6405, you
are fine. If you coded it as /rdcprojects, you are not...). You are yourself responsible for your home directories.

Please contact Lars as soon as possible to discuss this if you are affected.

The initial SSG cluster will have 4 nodes, with 8 cores/72GB/5TB per node. VRDC6405 will join the cluster, once reconfigured, with its current crop of 16 cores/128GB, plus an additional 5TB of scratch space (in addition to the current 1.1TB of /home and project space). We will be running a PBS-variant for scheduling (no need to run pmon). Initially, 1 node will be configured as
the NX front end node, with no statistical software (this will later be replaced by a reconfigured VRDC6402). All statistical processing will occur on the compute nodes; however, calling 'sas' or choosing SAS from the menu will initiate a remote SAS session through the scheduler on one of the compute nodes. Stata 11/MP8 will also be available (5 users, plus another 5 Stata/SE users).
