Talon2 online

Hi HPC Community,

Talon2 is back online and compute services have been resumed. All jobs that were suspended appear to have resumed correctly. As always, please notify us immediately if anything looks out of place.

Please note that we are still solving the Lustre Metadata high-availability issue. Lustre is extremely robust but this issue could cause loss of redundancy. However, we feel the risk of this is low enough that we can safely resume  service. 

A few more updates:

+ In a few short weeks, we plan to unveil Talon3 which will make use of the SLURM job scheduler.

  *Note: SLURM is a totally different architecture, therefore you will need to use different commands/job scripts.

+ Please routinely visit: https://hpc.unt.edu as we update it with critical user information such as:

   - Basic Talon3 usage information

   - Dates and times of workshops on the new system

   - Tips and tricks to efficiently maximize your utilization

We are excited to usher in a new era of high-performance computing here at UNT. After the dust clears, we are certain you will enjoy access to modern resources that enable your critical research.
