Several queues (or “partitions”) are availble to users for different types of jobs. One queue is restricted to single-node (serial or threaded) jobs; another for multinode parallel programs, and others are for access to specialty hardware such as large-memory nodes or nodes offering GPUs.

Partition Purpose Max time / job Max nodes / job Max cores / job Max cores / node Default memory / core Max memory / node / job SU Charge Rate
standard For jobs on a single compute node 7 days 1 37 37 9GB 750GB 1.00
parallel For large parallel jobs on up to 50 nodes 3 days 50 1500 40 9GB 375GB 1.00
largemem For memory intensive jobs 4 days 2 32 45 60GB 1464GB 1.00
gpu For jobs using general purpose graphical processing units 3 days 4 32GPUs 125 6GB 1953GB 3.00 *
dev For jobs that are quick tests of code 1 hour 2 16 25 6GB 246GB 0.00

* GPU charge rate = number of cores + 2 * number of GPU devices.
