How is Scholar different than other Community Clusters?

  • Scholar differs from the previous Community Clusters in many significant aspects:
  • Scholar is a hybrid cluster for teaching courses that require high-performance computing.
  • A subset of Scholar front-ends contain Nvidia Tesla V100 accelerator cards. You can access these front ends by logging in to gpu.scholar.rcac.purdue.edu.
  • A subset of Scholar compute nodes contain Nvidia Tesla V100 accelerator cards which can significantly improve performance of compute-intensive workloads. These can be utilized by submitting jobs to the gpu queue (add -A gpu to your job submission command).
  • A selection of GPU-enabled application containers from the Nvidia GPU Cloud (NGC) collection is installed.
