To be fair to all users of the cluster, please be aware of these resource limits and usage expectations.

Scheduled Jobs

All computational jobs need to be submitted to the cluster using the job scheduler. Please read the SLURM Guide for helpful information on using the scheduler. Listed below are the runtime and resource limits for scheduled jobs.

Job property Standard QoS Limit Longrun QoS Limit Haswell384 QoS Limit
Run time (hours) 36 72 18
Cores / CPUs 48 384
Jobs 8

Unscheduled programs

Programs that are running on login node (login.storrs.hpc.uconn.edu) without using the job scheduler, are subject to certain restrictions. Any program that violates these restrictions may be throttled or terminated without notice.

Run time (minutes) CPU limit Memory limit
20 5% 5%

Below is a list of programs that are allowed on the login node without restrictions:

  • bzip
  • cp
  • du
  • emacs
  • fort
  • gcc
  • gfortran
  • gunzip
  • gzip
  • icc
  • mv
  • sftp
  • smbclient
  • ssh
  • tar
  • vim
  • wget

Data Storage

Please familiarize yourself with the data storage guidelines described on the Getting Started page. All data that is stored on the cluster is subject to the restricted described on that page, and data that is not in compliance may be removed.
