Compute Cluster Resources

This department manages and administers the College of Science & Mathematics' PRISM research cluster. This cluster is comprised of 96 AMD Athlon MP CPUs running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. We recently upgraded to the latest release of The Portland Group's PGI Cluster Development Kit and Altair Engineering's Portable Batch System (PBS) queuing software. The cluster supports parallel processing via the Message Passing Interface (MPI).
