Euler VI Testing
The new Euler VI nodes are available for beta testing. They have 128 cores, 512 GB of memory and are connected in a 200 Gbps EDR Infiniband fabric.
Select or avoid Euler VI nodes
During the testing and transition period you can force your job to use or avoid these nodes.
To force your job to run on these nodes, request the “-R beta” or “-R "select[model==EPYC_7742]"” bsub option:
bsub -R beta [other bsub options] ./my_command bsub -R "select[model==EPYC_7742]" [other bsub options] ./my_command
To prevent your job from running on these nodes, request the “-R stable” bsub option:
bsub -R stable [other bsub options] ./my_command
If you encounter any problem with running your jobs on the new Euler VI nodes, then please report it to cluster support.
While you can always use the -R stable option, the -R beta option will not work after the Euler VI nodes are put into production.
Changes in behavior
If you request Euler VI nodes, then the batch system will run jobs requesting up to 128 cores on a single node.
Non-threaded (multi-node MPI) jobs
You should use the “-R "span[ptile=128]"” (or other appropriate value instead of 128) if you intend to run multi-node jobs.
