The SSCC’s Slurm cluster has become the place to run big research computing jobs. If you’re still running big jobs on Linstat, it’s time to start submitting them to Slurm instead (it’s easy to do). Linstat will focus on interactive work going forward. We are committed to making large-scale computing as accessible and easy to use as possible. The SSCC’s computing Guide to Research Computing at the SSCC is a great tool to guide you in using Slurm. The SSCC’s Statistical Consultants are also happy to answer questions and help you navigate using the new servers.
