large Hopper jobs now discounted 40 percent

October 4, 2011 by Francesca Verdier

Effective October 1 NERSC has increased the discount for large Hopper jobs from 25% to 40%. Large jobs are defined to be those using 683 or more nodes. The new queue charge rate for the reg_med, reg_big and reg_xbig queues is now .6 (and has been applied retroactively to Oct 1).

We hope that this change will allow projects with work that can run efficiently on 683 or more nodes will now have enough allocated time to permit these large runs.
