Glenn Retirement

Glenn Cluster Retired: March 24, 2016

The Glenn Cluster supercomputer has been retired from service to make way for a much more powerful new system. As an OSC client, the removal of the cluster will result in work being added to the heavy workload being handled by Oakley or Ruby, potentially impacting you.

Migrating jobs from Glenn to Oakley or Ruby

This page includes a summary of differences to keep in mind when migrating jobs from Glenn to one of our other clusters.

Hardware

Most Oakley nodes have 12 cores and 48GB memory. There are eight large-memory nodes with 12 cores and 192GB memory, and one huge-memory node with 32 cores and 1TB of memory. Most Ruby nodes have 20 cores and 64GB of memory. There is one huge-memory node with 32 cores and 1TB of memory. By contrast, most Glenn nodes have 8 cores and 24GB memory, with eight nodes having 16 cores and 64GB memory.

ANSYS default module changes

Date: 
Monday, February 2, 2015 - 4:15pm
Supercomputer: 

We have updated the default module of ANSYS on both Oakley and Glenn. The default module of ANSYS is ANSYS 14.5.7 on Oakley and ANSYS 14.5 on Glenn. For example, if you use module load ansys on Oakley, ANSYS 14.5.7 (instead of ANSYS 13.0) is loaded. We however keep the older versions of ANSYS installed on our cluster.

FLUENT default module changes

Date: 
Monday, February 2, 2015 - 4:00pm
Supercomputer: 

We have updated the default module of FLUENT on both Oakley and Glenn. The default module of FLUENT is FLUENT15.0.7 on Oakley and FLUENT 14.5 on Glenn. For example, if you use module load fluent on Oakley, FLUENT 15.0.7 (instead of FLUENT 13.0) is loaded. We however keep the older versions of FLUENT installed on our cluster.
