This page documents the hardware, software, and policies surrounding this resource.
This cluster currently runs Ubuntu version 11.10 for the x86-64 with custom additions by CSE. The major customizations include (but are not limited to) ganglia, OpenMPI, cobbler, SLURM, and Puppet.
Requests for any centrally installed software should go to email@example.com. Any software that is available in Ubuntu is also available for installation or already installed on this cluster. We have set up a page that has details on the current software configuration. We use Environment Modules to manage the environment. A quick into:
module load <directory/application>
Documentation on some of the custom installed software is at HPC Software Documentation.
Ganglia is available but a SSH tunnel is required to view. For example:
ssh -L 50087:hive.csc.ucdavis.edu:80 firstname.lastname@example.org
The URL to get to the ganglia page would then be http://localhost:50087/ganglia
In a Linux environment you might create an alias in your .bashrc file:
alias hiveganglia='ssh -L 50087:hive.csc.ucdavis.edu:80 email@example.com'
hiveganglia would then create the tunnel.
The hardware for hive is made up of the following:
