High Performance Computing

General Notes

The ZIV is offering services in the field of scientific computing. You can run your codes on hardware that offers much more performance than modern desktop computers.

HPC systems offered by the ZIV

At the moment, the ZIV is running the following HPC systems:

  • PALMA A Linux xluster with 3528 Intel Xeon processor cores with 30.22 TFlops
  • NWZPHI A Linux-Cluster consisting of 336 CPU cores and 98 Intel Xeon Phi Accelerators
  • PALMA-NG Login node to a more recent part of the PALMA system.

Choosing HPC Systems

I want to use the HPC systems of the ZIV and are not sure, what do do.

  • If you do not have the need for huge ressources and/or are not a member of a group that is already working with PALMA, you can use the u0dawin queue of PALMA-NG. You will only have to register for the group u0clstr at MeinZIV
  • If you are a member of the groups p0stud, p0mitarb, q0stud, q0mitarb, r0stud or r0mitarb, you can also use the cluster NWZPHI
  • If you want to use PALMA and your group has not already registered for it, you will have to write a proposal for your group (not for yourself). Please contact hpc@uni-muenster.de for the details.

What do I have to do?

Wir m÷chten Sie darum bitten, die Publikationen, die Sie mit Hilfe unserer HPC-Systeme erstellt haben, mit einem entsprechenden Hinweis in die Forschungsdatenbank einzutragen. Eine Anleitung dazu finden Sie hier: https://www.uni-muenster.de/imperia/md/content/mitarbeiterportal/forschung/cris/anleitungen/anleitung_forschungsinfrastruktur.pdf

Lectures and Contact

Once a semester there is a lecture (in German) about the usage of our HPC systems and parallel programming. You should already have some Linux and C/C++ knowledge to participate.

If you have questions regarding High Performance Computing at the ZIV, you can write us to hpc@uni-muenster.de (of course in German, too).
