Frontera Texascale Days - 2-8 February 2021

Posted by Jesse Snead on Jan 14, 2021 5:06:02 PM

Frontera will be reserved for Texascale Days - very large scale runs of at least half system size (3,700 - 4,000 nodes) or full system size (7600 - 7900 nodes) Monday, February 2 through Monday, February 8. 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.  For access to the “large” queue, please submit a ticket with scaling data.

On the last day, Feb. 8, 2 hour blocks will be available for benchmarking efforts rather than production runs.  The other days, February 2 - February 7, will be set aside for production runs.  On these days, each project will have dedicated access to the number of nodes requested for a 24 hour period starting at 0900 CST.

To participate, please fill out and submit the form ( before COB January 22.

Please submit any questions you may have through the TACC Consulting System or feedback form.
