Overview of Radon

Radon was a compute cluster operated by ITaP for general campus use. Radon's final incarnation consisted of 45 HP Moonshot compute nodes with 32 GB RAM and are connected by 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GigE).

Radon Detailed Hardware Specification

Radon consisted of one sub-cluster "E". The nodes had 2.5 GHz quad-core, Hyper-Threading enabled Intel Xeon E3-1284 CPUs (8 logical cores), 32 GB RAM, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

At the time of retirement, Radon nodes ran Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL6) and use Moab Workload Manager 8 and TORQUE Resource Manager 5 as the portable batch system (PBS) for resource and job management.
