Talon3 launch

HPC Community,

We are excited that we are close to launching Talon3! A select group of users is currently beta testing the new cluster. We anticipate launching Talon3 early next week pending feedback from testing. As such I wanted to ensure you were aware of a few items:

  • There are plans to unveil a new user support portal for more efficient end user support
  • We plan to hold a Quick Start workshop next Wednesday from 1p-2p in the HPC Studio (GAB 535)

           Note: Due to limited seating, please RSVP to this email in order to reserve your seat.

Please also be aware that we will be migrating to a new job control system: SLURM (https://slurm.schedmd.com/) . It is advisable to begin familiarizing yourself if you haven't already. Unfortunately, currently running jobs and job scripts are not compatible with the new system. The plan is to close the UGE queues on Talon2 next week and let those jobs in execution run to completion. You will need to rewrite/resubmit your job to the SLURM system unless you utilize the run script.

It is our goal to make this transition as seamless as possible for you.  Contact us if you have any specific concerns at hpc-admin@unt.edu.
