Available Memory on Odyssey

This page is intended to help you plan your memory usage on the Odyssey cluster. It also provides instructions for requesting memory resources for your jobs. Memory on Odyssey Most of the compute nodes, specifically the hero nodes, have 32 GB of RAM. The hero nodes have 8 cores ( i.e., 4 GB per core ). In addition, there is…

Customizing Your Environment on Odyssey

When your account is created on Odyssey it is created with some basic default options. It is possible to customize these. Below explains some of the changes that you can make. Change your information By default we do not store your GECOS (General Electric Comprehensive Operating System) field in the Odyssey directory server. You will likely see the following: [hptc@iliadaccess03…

How are job priorities within a queue determined?

All public queues on Odyssey employ 'Fairshare' queueing, in which a job's priority within a queue is calculated as follows: dynamic priority = number_shares / (cpu_time * CPU_TIME_FACTOR + run_time*RUN_TIME_FACTOR + (1 + job_slots)*RUN_JOB_FACTOR) cpu_time The cumulative CPU time used by the user (measured in hours). LSF calculates the cumulative CPU time using the actual (not normalized) CPU time and…

Why are my jobs in the SSUSP state?

To maximize cluster efficiency, the short_ and normal_serial queues target nodes that are owned by individual research groups. These groups have agreed to let their nodes be used by general users on the condition that should a member of the owning research group need to run a job and there are insufficient processors open, then guest jobs using their nodes will be suspended while the owner's job runs. The guest job will remain suspended until the owning job finishes, even if other nodes open up (i.e., there is no job migration).
