Call for Proposals: High-Impact Science at Scale on Cori

June 13, 2017 by Richard Gerber

NERSC is seeking proposals to conduct high-impact science campaigns using NERSC’s Cori supercomputer at scale.  Up to 400 million NERSC Hours in total will be awarded to research teams addressing scientific problems that require the computing capability of Cori’s 9,688 Xeon Phi “Knight’s Landing” (KNL) nodes. A successful proposal would require the use of at least 2,000 KNL nodes to solve a problem, with a preference for proposals that exploit Cori’s unique capabilities (e.g., using all or most of the KNL nodes, perhaps in combination with the burst buffer).

Charging on Cori Xeon Phi (KNL) nodes begins July 1

May 26, 2017 by Richard Gerber

Effective July 1, 2017 at 12:00:01 am Pacific time, NERSC will begin charging for time used on the Cori KNL nodes. The charge rate is 96 NERSC hours per node-hour, e.g., a job running on two nodes for 3 hours will be charged 96*2*3 = 576 NERSC hours.

New Interactive Partition on Cori Now Available!

May 1, 2017 by Rebecca Hartman-Baker

In response to user feedback about long waits for debugging, NERSC has deployed experimental functionality to support medium-length interactive work on Cori. Users will be able to submit interactive jobs for as many as 20 nodes for up to 4 hours and get access to them within one minute. To ensure this queue is available to anyone who wants to use it, a user is limited to only one job at a time, and a repo is limited to a total of 20 nodes of any type (Haswell AND KNL).
