As of 10:00 AM, September 15, 2011, the Hansen Community cluster has gone into production.

Hansen is comprised of 200 Dell computer nodes, with four 12-core AMD Opteron 6176 processors (48 cores per node), and is interconnected with RDMA-enabled 10Gb Ethernet.

In conjunction with Hansen's go-live this morning (Sept. 15, 2011), we are pleased to announce the availability of online self-service user and queue maintenance.

The cluster also features a high-performance 300TB Lustre parallel filesystem for scratch storage. In conjunction with Hansen's go-live this morning (Sept. 15, 2011), we are pleased to announce the availability of online self-service user and queue maintenance.

This application will enable you (or a designee of your choosing) to directly manage the list of users who are authorized to access your queue on the Hansen cluster.

Simply by typing their first name, last name, or career account username into the "add a new user" search box, you can add your students and collaborators as members of your queue!

New accounts will be created via a batch process overnight, and will, for the time being, turn around in approximately 1 business day.

The interface is available at:

 https://web.rcac.purdue.edu/account/user/  

If you are a owner-partner on another cluster, you will notice that you can see your queue lists for those clusters. However, self-service user and queue maintenance has not been enabled on the other clusters (Steele, Coates, Rossmann). You can expect this to occur during the next month.

If you encounter any issues with the user/queue application or with getting started on Hansen, please contact us at rcac-help@purdue.edu.
