Account Resource Limits
The following information outlines the usage limits for specific HPC account types.
Compute Hour Limits
Time on the Linux computing resource is allocated in core hours. To determine your core hours, multiply how many nodes you will be using by the number of CPU cores you will be using and then multiply that number by how many hours you will be using them. For example, the use of 10 nodes with 8 CPU cores for three hours is counted as 240 core hours. Most of the HPC compute nodes have 8 CPU cores so if you are unsure of how many cores you are using per node, 8 is a good estimate.
Concurrent Job Limits
In general, jobs will be scheduled and run on a first-come, first-served basis within a partition, provided that adequate resources are available. To maximize the use of computing resources, HPC management, in consultation with the HPC allocation committee, may restrict the number of jobs you can run concurrently from a given account.
