Clusters

There are two clusters available to the Math Dept users:

The qwe cluster in Wean Hall room 6120 contains the computers qwe1-qwe8.math.cmu.edu that work with the math accounts. A key can be obtained from the Math main office. Please do not power down or reboot these computers since there are other people using them remotely. These computers are intended for general purpose use. They offer easy access to:

    • most scientific and office applications,
    • printing and scanning,
    • a departmental email address username@math.cmu.edu which can be filtered and managed locally by the user,
    • a personal website http://www.math.cmu.edu/~username/ showing the files in the public directory on the cluster.

The parallel cluster contains the following computers:

    • fp81-fp87.math.cmu.edu for general purpose computing,
    • fp64 has 64 cores and 128GB RAM, being appropriate for highly parallel jobs,
    • fpg1.math.cmu.edu contains two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (3584 cores each) GPUs and fpg2.math.cmu.edu contains one Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and one Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 T (3584 cores each) GPUs, both can be used for GPU computing using CUDA, and
    • fp48.math.cmu.edu has 48 cores and 256GB of RAM, and is appropriate for large memory jobs.

The parallel cluster can be accessed remotely via ssh, using the math accounts. As these clusters are intended for users from Math and Physics Depts, launching jobs that need an important percentage of the cluster for a longer period of time should be discussed with Florin, Wean Hall room 6218. The parallel cluster is intended for number crunching and large scientific applications. To run processes while disconnected from the account, please use start them through "byobu" or "nohup".
