SystemG Reservations

From CS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In order to access SystemG, you must have an account. Request one through your CS professor.

In order to use the SystemG nodes, you must provide the following details:

- your name
- your affiliated lab/professor
- number of nodes that you need
- how long you intend to use them (start and stop dates)
- will you need sudo
- will you be making major changes to the nodes that they will need to be re-imaged?
- will you need access to the local disk storage on the nodes?

Send the above in an email to the administrator Bo Li (bxl4074@vt.edu). Once he confirms your reservation, he will update this page and you can use the nodes allocated to you. The idea behind setting up this page is to streamline and simplify the process of using SystemG. Most importantly, this process ensures that folks have exclusive reservations on nodes. Please do not directly login to a node that has not been allocated to you without checking this page. Login processes can significantly impact performance timing runs.


Allocations of 32 nodes or more should done be on a weekly basis. Individuals should not have more than one allocation i.e. if they have 16 nodes, they shouldn't come again and get more in between. 32 node allocations can NOT be extended beyond a week unless they receive special permission.


IMPORTANT: Please make sure that the following reservation information is correct before using any of the compute nodes in SystemG. It is YOUR responsibility to request time extensions BEFORE they expire. It is important that the users understand the significance of this checkout sheet. Please do not modify or attempt to tweak others reservations. Failure to comply with these simple instructions will result in revocation of your login on SystemG.


All weekend reservations must be made by 5pm Thursday before the weekend reservation will occur. Weekend reservations will include the ENTIRE cluster. Also, if you have a project that can NOT be interrupted, let him know before Thursday @ 5pm.
