HOWTO: IME, Cache & Burst Buffer for Scratch File System

The Owens and Pitzer clusters have access to the DDN Infinite Memory Engine (IME), a fast data tier between the compute nodes and the /fs/scratch file system. IME is a Solid State Disk (SSD) that can act as a cache and burst buffer to improve the performance of the scratch file system.

While some jobs will benefit from using IME, others will not. You need to understand the workflow of IME well, since sometimes it is not very intuitive. Files must be explicitly imported, synchronized and/or purged.
