Policies

Currently, the URC Cluster usage policies are very informal:

  1. accounts are available on request for any member of the faculty, or for a student participating in a faculty sponsored research project.
  2. cluster users may submit an unlimited number of jobs but are limited to 192 cores in use concurrently.  Maximum allowed wall time is currently 30 days, but users are discouraged from submitting jobs that run for over one week.
  3. cluster storage should not be used for long time archival of results or data files. The intent of the cluster storage is to support short term storage of input data, results and intermediate files as needed to support actively running processes or active projects.

As needed, these policies will be refined and additional policies will be added in cooperation with the cluster user community.
