  • PC-cluster with GPU accelerators Alvis for national and local users.

C3SE is also part of SNIC Science Cloud and Swestore

News

Date Text
2021-01-13 The Hebbe and Vera cluster will be drained of all running jobs in order to perform a global update of SLURM. During this time, some more newer OpenMPI modules will be rebuilt to address a few technical issues. Jobs that finish before 2021-01-13T09:00:00 will start, but jobs whose walltime extends beyond this point will be blocked until after the update. If you can, shorten your walltime.
2020-10-13 Alvis nodes are reinstalled to support for GPUDirect in jobs across multiple GPU nodes. This also means we have a new module tree for Alvis which already contains most of the same software. Singularity containers are not affected. Contact the support if you have any issues or need additional software installed in the new tree.
