Posted by Tim Cockerill on Aug 25, 2020 10:18:12 AM

Frontera will be reserved for Texascale Days - very large scale runs of at least 4,000 nodes up to full system - to be held immediately following the system maintenance September 1 through Monday September 7. This event allows our researchers the opportunity to work on problems that may not be possible at the smaller scale. To be eligible to participate, your application must have already successfully run on at least 2,048 nodes in the Large Queue on Frontera.If you would like to participate in Texascale Days, please submit a ticket and include a brief description of the experiment you would like to run and how many nodes would be required.  If you have not yet run at 2,048 nodes and would like to request access to the large queue, include this in your request. This should include your own strong or weak scaling results from Frontera on up to 512 nodes.If you have already run in the large queue on at least 2048 nodes, you are qualified to request a Texascale reservation to try running at 4,000 nodes or more.
