- HPCC users who do not have a buy-in account are given a 'general' SLURM account. The general account is limited to 500,000 CPU hours (30,000,000 minutes) and 10,000 GPU hours (60600,000 minutes) every year (from January 1st to December 31st) starting from 2021
- There is no CPU or GPU hour limit if jobs use a buy-in account. If you have a buy-in account, your jobs will be run under that account by default, unless the manager of the buy-in account has chosen to opt-in (jobs submitted with the -A flag) instead of opt-out.
Users with general account can use the powertools command SLURMUsage to check their used CPU and GPU time (in minutes) and left CPU and GPU time (in hours):
Code Block language bash
$ ml powertools # run this command if powertools not loaded $ SLURMUsage Account Resource Usage(m) Left CPU(h) UserName ============================================================== general CPU Time 0 500000.00 MSUNetID GPU Time 0 10000.00 MSUNetID
where the CPU usages of the user's general account is shown.
- If users without a buy-in account needs more CPU or GPU time due to running out of the limits, they can request additional CPU/GPU hours by filling out the CPU/GPU Increase Request online form.
