Resource Centre Available Capacity Unit Note
Tetralith NSC 200 x 1000 core-h/month
Tetralith,, runs a CentOS 7 version of the NSC Cluster Software Environment. This means that most things are very familiar to Triolith users. You still use Slurm (e.g sbatch, interactive, ...) to submit your jobs. ThinLinc is available on the login nodes. Applications are selected using "module". All Tetralith compute nodes have 32 CPU cores. There will be 1832 "thin" nodes with 96 GiB of primary memory (RAM) and 60 "fat" nodes with 384 GiB. Each compute node will have a local SSD disk where applications can store temporary files (approximately 200GB per node). All Tetralith nodes are interconnected with a 100 Gbps Intel Omni-Path network which is also used to connect the existing storage. The Omni-Path network works in a similar way to the FDR Infiniband network in Triolith (e.g with a fat-tree topology). The Tetralith installation will take place in two phases. The first phase consist of 644 nodes and have a capacity that exceeds the current computing capacity of Triolith. The first phase was made available to users on August 23, 2018. Triolith was turned off September 21, 2018. After this, the second phase of the Tetralith installation will begin. NSC plans to have the entire Tetralith in operation no later than December 31st (i.e for the next round of SNAC Large projects.)
