Swansea Upgraded

This morning, we have re-opened the Swansea system to end-users after last week’s substantial software upgrade.

The entire system software stack has now been updated or changed – operating system, cluster management and scheduler where we now deploy CentOS 6.7, xCAT 2.10 and Slurm 15.08.

The last of these is the one which has most effect on users, hence we have provided comprehensive information on migrating use from LSF to Slurm on this web site.

As ever, the HPC Wales Support Desk is here to help with any issues that crop up. We look forward to Swansea providing many more millions of CPU hours in its new configuration.
