Service Description


The IT Center operates high performance computers in order to support institutions and employees in terms of education and research.

All machines are integrated into one “RWTH Compute Cluster” running under the Linux operating system.

General information about usage of the RWTH Compute Cluster is described in this area -  whereas information about programming the high performance computers is described in RWTH Compute Cluster - Parallel Programming.

All members of the RWTH Aachen University have free access to the RWTH Compute Cluster. But the amount of resources they can use is limited.

Above a certain threshold applications for more resources have to be submitted which then are reviewed. This application process is also open to external German scientists in institutions related to education and research. Please find related information here.

Please find information about how to get access to the system here.

You can get information about using and programming the RWTH Compute Cluster online on this website, in our Primer which you can download as a single pdf file for print out, or during our  HPC related Events. For many of these Events, particularly turorials, we collect related material on our web site as well - see  here. And then there are regular lectures, exercises and software labs of the Chair for HPC covering related topics.

Users of the RWTH Compute Cluster will continuously be informed through the HPC Mailinglist (registration, archive )

Maintenance Information


RWTH Störungsmeldungen
Reboot-Job fuer alle Batch-Systeme eingestellt
Hinweis von Mittwoch 21.06.2017 11:15 bis unbekannt - Wir haben aus Wartungsgruenden fuer jeden Batch-Host einen Job eingestellt, der das jeweilige System einmal rebootet. Da der Job Vorrang hat, laeuft auf jedem System erst dann wieder ein neuer Nutzer-Job an, wenn der Reboot erfolgt ist.

News


  • Important: new  formalities by RWTH projects:

  • a reboot job has been submitted to the cluster. It has the highest priority and will remove any reservations so far. We hope to solve the $HPCWORK problems that way.
