Kamiak System Configuration

Cluster Resources

Kamiak is a condominium-style HPC cluster in which investors can purchase nodes on which they receive non-preemtable service. An overarching “backfill” partition also provides open access to idle resources for use by the entire WSU research community.

Access to each sponsor and investor queue is restricted to users who are associated with the owner of the resources in the queue.  To gain access to a queue, contact the owner of the queue for approval as described in Kamiak’s FAQ.

Below we describe the architecture of the backfill and investor partitions.

Definitions:

Max CPU Cores per User: The maximum number of CPU cores across all running jobs of a user. Newly submitted jobs which would exceed this number are automatically queued, pending the completion of the user’s older jobs.

Max Memory per User: The maximum amount of memory across all running jobs of a user. Newly submitted jobs which would exceed this number are automatically queued, pending the completion of the user’s older jobs.

Scheduler Feature Tags: Tags which can be used in job submissions (with –constraint=tag) to specify the node a job should run on.
