Automatic kill of heavy programs in login nodes implemented

July 23, 2013
Dear HGC Supercomputer user,

Human Genome Center
Supercomputing Services

Thank you very much for using our center's services.

In order to prevent the overload of the login nodes, we have implemented an automatic kill mechanism.

If a heavy job is executed in login nodes, the concerned process will be automatically killed.When the automatic kill is executed, we will send an email to the user of the process, that the process has been killed.

We ask that, programs that require long hours of much CPU or memory, be executed in calculation nodes (c, nc) and not in login nodes (gw, ngw).

For information on qlogin and qsub, please refer to pages 19–33 of the seminar document below.

Using the UGE (Japanese only)
