This site provides you with pointers that gives good insight on HPCC servers and storage on the fly. Knowledge on type of nodes and their attributes helps you to ask for appropriate resources for your jobs whereas familiarity on individual and group quota keeps your jobs seamlessly running in the cluster without affecting your group members. To provide CWRU researchers seamless computing environment to run their jobs 24/7 and to accommodate burst traffic, we have investigated other resources as well.
