Users should not run computations or simulations on the login nodes, because they are shared with other users. You can use the login nodes to compile your codes, manage files, and launch jobs on the compute nodes.
To allow users sharing access to Oscar, there are limits on the maximum number of pending and running jobs a user account may have/submit:
CCV Staff install software upon user requests or help users on software installation
Oscar has 3.27PB storage from the General Parallel File System (GPFS) of IBM, which provides high performance access of storage. Users have Home, Scratch, and Data directories as their storage with quota in Oscar. Please refer to the details at Oscar's filesystem.
Access and User Accounts - User accounts are controlled via central authentication and directories on HPC are only deleted on the request of the user, PI, or departmental chair.
Files not accessed for 30 days will be deleted from your scratch directory. Use ~/data for files you wish to keep long term.
Call CIS Operations Center at (401) 863-7562. A ticket will get created and CCV staff will be contacted to address the issue.
