Summit is the second-generation HPC cluster at University of Colorado Research Computing, following Janus. Summit is an NSF-Funded cluster shared between th University of Colorado, Colorado State University, and institutions in the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortuium (RMACC).
- From a login node, run “module load slurm/summit” to access the Slurm job scheduler instance for Summit.
- Consult the Table and the Examples section below to learn how to direct your jobs to the appropriate compute nodes.
- If needed, compile your application on a compile node (Compiling and Linking).
All jobs are run through a batch/queue system. Interactive jobs on compute nodes are allowed but these must be initiated through the scheduler. High-priority jobs move to the top of the queue and are thus guaranteed to start running within a few minutes, unless other high-priority jobs are already queued or running ahead of them. High-priority jobs can run for a maximum wall time of 7 days. Low-priority jobs have a maximum wall time of 24 hours.
