SUPERCOMPUTING INFRASTRUCTURE

 

Under the limited budget of the ESMI interim arrangement, the supercomputing infrastructure is not avaailable. 

SUPERCOMPUTING

Juropa - FZ J├╝lich, Germany

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE FACILITY 

HARDWARE 
ESMI SUPERCOMPUTING FACILITY 
JUROPA
CONFIGURATION 
2208 compute nodes: 
2 Intel Xeon X5570 (Nehalem-EP) quad-core processors with 2.93 GHz 
SMT (Simultaneous Multithreading) 
24 GB memory (DDR3, 1066 MHz) 
17664 cores total 
207 Teraflops peak performance 
183.5 Teraflops Linpack performance 
Sun Blade 6048 system 
Infiniband QDR with non-blocking Fat Tree topology 

DISK SPACE 
In $HOME there is a limit 3 TB. For larger data sizes, the Archive 
$GPFSARCH is recommended, where no restrictions on data sizes apply at present.

REMARKS 
At present it is only possible to allocate a maximum of 512 compute nodes (i.e. <= 4096 cores) in a production run 

CPU TIME 
The ESMI proposals will be based upon the unit TFlop-h. 
For your convenience, please find here below the conversion with other units 
1 TFlop-h = 10.67 Node-h = 85.36 Core-h 
or 
1 Core-h = 0.125 Node-h = 0.0117 TFlop-h 

JUROPA HOMEPAGE

SOFTWARE 
USER CODES 
Users are welcome to install their own simulation codes and libraries locally in their directories
Note: for the CPU time application process it should be proved that codes scale at least up to 8 processes 

AVAILABLE SOFTWARE 
Some common simulation-, visualization- and mathematical-programs and libraries are installed on Juropa.

MISCELLANEOUS 
Information on data transfer after project termination 
After the project phase the users are responsible to migrate their data to other machines. 
There will be no long term storage of user data after the project has expired
