Good morning! 


Spots are still available in the following Institutes: HPC Leadership, Applied Parallel Programming, and Machine Learning. Details and registration links below: 

HPC Leadership Institute in Cooperation with Microsoft (In-Person Only) 
September 12-14 
The High Performance Computing (HPC) Leadership Institute is specifically tailored to managers and decision makers who are using, or considering using, HPC within their organizations. It is also applicable to those with a real opportunity to make this career step in the near future. Topics covered will include procurement considerations, pricing and capital expenditures, operating expenditures, and cost/benefit analysis of adding HPC to a company's or institution's R&D portfolio. A broad scope of HPC is covered from department scale clusters to the largest supercomputers, modeling and simulation to non-traditional use cases, and more. We encourage attendees from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented communities.

Frontera Pathways and LSCP Opportunities now open for proposals through September 15.
 
We are pleased to announce the fourth Frontera Pathways and Frontera Large Scale Community Partnership (LSCP) allocation tracks are open through September 15. Resources available for request include Frontera and its GPU subsystem (https://fronteraweb.tacc.utexas.edu/user-guide/), as well as the Longhorn GPU resource (https://portal.tacc.utexas.edu/user-guides/longhorn).
 
Pathways
 
Smaller allocations from 10,000 to 250,000 node-hours to science teams with a strong scientific justification for access to a leadership-class computing resource, but who have not yet demonstrated code readiness to effectively utilize such a resource. Successful applicants will use the allocation award to work with the Frontera team to scale their codes in order to effectively use the system. Successful applicants must demonstrate existing research funding to support the required code and algorithm development activities on Frontera. Additionally, early career scientists and engineers with an outstanding publication record investigating novel techniques for solving potentially transformative S&E research topics are encouraged to apply. 
 
Large-Scale Community Partnerships (LSCP)
 
Allocations from 25,000 to 1,000,000 node-hours to support a large and typically multi-institutional community of users and beneficiaries working on the same research topic, who collectively justify the need for this scale of HPC resource but individually would not. Extended allocations can be requested for up to three years to support long-lived S&E experiments. Successful applicants must demonstrate current peer-reviewed research funding to support the activities conducted on Frontera for the time period requested. The LSCP process will make merit-based allocation awards annually for allocations spanning three years, with years 2 and 3 awarded after successful completion of a progress review including an updated computational plan for the next year.
 
Detailed descriptions of all four Frontera allocation tracks can be found on the Frontera Allocations web page (https://fronteraweb.tacc.utexas.edu/allocations/).
 
Please consult the webinar “Writing a Successful Frontera Allocation Proposal.” (https://learn.tacc.utexas.edu/mod/page/view.php?id=99)
 
How to Submit an Allocation Request
 
Please begin by reading the Allocations Policy & Submission Guidelines (https://fronteraweb.tacc.utexas.edu/allocations/policy/) that provides information regarding who is eligible to apply, minimum and maximum allocation sizes, and an outline of the information that is required to be included in your proposal.
 
After reading the allocations policy and guidelines, you may determine that a startup allocation would be beneficial to do code performance and benchmarking to be incorporated into your Pathways or LSCP proposal. Instructions for obtaining a Startup allocation are included on the policy & guidelines web page (https://fronteraweb.tacc.utexas.edu/allocations/policy/).
 
Please submit any questions you may have through the TACC Consulting System or feedback form.

Stampede2 Status August 22 2022

Posted by Mark Brueschke on Aug 22, 2022 10:12:38 AM

Stampede2 is currently experiencing a filesystem outage, the system will be partially while emergency maintenance is underway. Queues are closed during this time.

Updated on Aug 24, 2022 9:55:22 AM

The Stampede2 /home1 filesystem is back and system back in full operation.

Updated on Aug 23, 2022 6:08:57 PM

The Stampede2 home filesystem remains partially offline with one of the four storage servers still unavailable.  The storage hardware has been repaired but now the filesystem checks to ensure consistency of the data is taking much longer than anticipated.  These filesystem checks need to complete before the system can be put back into full production so it will likely be some time Wednesday 8/24 before system is returned to service.

Updated on Aug 22, 2022 3:31:54 PM

The Stampede2 home filesystem experienced a severe hardware error this morning on one of its four servers. The filesystem server is currently undergoing recovery and will remain offline until the recovery is complete.  Based on current status, estimating approximately 7:00 PM Central Time on Tuesday August 23rd before the system will resume production operations.  Users may experience session "hangs" when attempting to login or access files that reside on the offline server.
