Technical documentation

No, you have not stumbled onto an archive containing the lost notebooks of da Vinci or the unfinished works of Frank Lloyd Wright. The definition of architecture extends beyond buildings to the complex or carefully designed structure of anything – including HPC systems. What you will find in this area are technical notes produced as UD IT builds and supports these research computers.

General Information

Articles in this section discuss generic system administration tasks/observations.

Grid Engine

The following articles discuss some of the implementation details involved in tailoring the Grid Engine job scheduler to the UD HPC systems.

PERCEUS

Compute nodes are provisioned and managed using the open source PERCEUS toolkit.

White papers

According to Wikipedia, a white paper is an authoritative report or guide that helps readers understand an issue, solve a problem, or make a decision. Wikipedia claims that white papers are primarily used in marketing and government, but the definition applies equally well to the computing world.

Occasionally there may be performance benchmarking studies performed on the clusters or on new hardware being considered for use in the clusters. Any significant findings that can be made public will be published in the white paper area of the site.
