Edison's move is complete

January 8, 2016 by Richard Gerber

We're pleased to announce that Edison is once again available to all NERSC users. The move from the NERSC Oakland Scientific Facility to the main Berkeley Lab campus was completed one week earlier than expected! Usage will not be charged through the end of the allocation year. Edison is now using the SLURM batch scheduler and job launcher (qsub will not work!). Please see the following web page for more information:

The system is believed to be stable, but some testing and configuration is still ongoing. Please report any problems or issues to If you encounter performance issues while running OpenMP (or other) threaded code, please make sure you are setting OMP_NUM_THREADS correctly and using the proper options shown in the "Srun Options" section of the web page mentioned above. We expect demand to be high, so stricter job limits will be in place through the end of the allocation year on Jan. 11, 2016. Please see
