In most cases, you don't want to specify the topology (the exact number of processors per node). If you let MOAB choose the topology for you, your job might run sooner. If there are not enough nodes available to run an interactive job immediately or if the topology you picked is not available, you will have to wait!
High Performance Computing @ FSU
Computational resources are a critical part of scientific research and engineering programs and play an increasingly important role in preparing students for careers in both commercial and academics fields. Recent advances in data acquisition, algorithm development, and computer hardware have made High Performance Computing (HPC) fundamentally necessary to remain competitive. FSU has long recognized the importance of local HPC resources for research and education. In 2002 FSU gained the distinct honor of having the largest university-owned computer facility worldwide and 34th largest among all facilities. Since its inception this facility has enabled research programs spanning such disciplines as biology, engineering, physics, meteorology, mathematics, oceanography, and more (see our research page for details).
The FSU HPC mission is to:
- Support multidisciplinary research
- Provide a general access computing platform
- Encourage cost sharing by departments with dedicated computing needs
- Provide a broad base of support and training opportunities
