This is the homepage for the The MIT Darwin Project computational facilities. This site is currently under development.
Compute Facility Overview
The Darwin Project computational facilities consist of a
- a 128 compute cluster with 512 cores with a high-speed Myrinet interconnect.
- a roughly 500TB high-performance GPFS parallel filesystem
- a 60 2560x1600 pixel panel, 240 Megapixel display system
- 10 gigabit based networking infrastructure linking around campus and to external project partners.
More details on the software and hardware can be found under the links below
The graphics cluster is up and running. Looking for large resolution 100+Mp visualizations to display on it!!!
Sept, 08: The ocean modelers currently have 90 nodes reserved for a large ocean model run, the rest of the nodes are available for general use.
Nodes compute-1-0 and compute-1-1 are permanently reserved for interactive use. Please run interactive jobs on one of these nodes instead of hte head node.
