Perseus is a 320 node Dell Beowulf cluster. All compute nodes in this cluster are connected via an Infiniband network designed for high speed and low latency to enable excellent performance for tightly coupled MPI codes. Each node has 28-core Broadwell processors and 128 GB of RAM.
System Configuration and Usage
The head node, perseus, should be used for interactive work only, such as compiling programs, and submitting jobs as described below. No jobs should be run on the head node, other than brief tests that last no more than a few minutes. Where practical, we ask that you entirely fill the nodes so that CPU core fragmentation is minimized. For this cluster, perseus, that means multiples of 28 cores.
Please remember that these are shared resources for all users.
Perseus will be down for maintenance on the second Tuesday of every month.
