Overview of Prospero
The Prospero community cluster consisted of 19 Dell Quad-Processor 2.33 GHz Intel Xeon systems with 8 GB RAM and both Gigabit Ethernet and Infiniband interconnects. Each node had enough memory to run most jobs, and the high-speed Infiniband interconnect helped with many communication-bound parallel jobs.
|Number of Nodes||Processors per Node||Cores per Node||Memory per Node||Retired in|
|19||Four 2.33 GHz Single-Core Intel Xeon 5140||4||8 GB||2013|
All Prospero nodes ran Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL4) and used PBSPro 9.x for resource and job management. Prospero also ran jobs for BoilerGrid whenever processors in it would otherwise have been idle.
