High Performance Intercloud - Hokkaido University Information Initiative Center



> A new resource group ‘xa’ is now available

As requested by users, a new resource group ‘xa’ has been set up on Grand Chariot (system A) and will be served until the end of FY2019.
The maximum number of nodes in this group is 400, and the maximum elapsed time is 180 hours.

Since this resource group utilizes a large number of nodes, please note that it has such a higher risk that the job will not be completed by unexpected troubles such as hardware failures than other resource groups.
Therefore, we might not rewind tokens in this group when jobs are incomplete or cancelled, even if the causes are attributed to our center.

Each user should use the resource group xa after fully understanding this matter.
