Any researcher belonging to the French research community, referring to his/her laboratory, is able to apply for resources on the CINES hosted computers using the « DARI (Demande d’Attribution de Ressources Informatiques) » web site. He describes the project scientific interest and the resources needed to achieve it. Thematics Comitees gathering national experts review the applications and propose a resource allocation for the selected projects, based on their scientific excellence level. This procedure, managed by GENCI, is shared by the three national Tier-1 computing centers: CINES, IDRIS and TGCC.
The parallel architecture supercomputer at CINES is :
- Occigen (BullX) (3.5 Pflop/s, 85244 cores)
Procedures to acces the CINES resources via the DARI application :
- Access to hosts is awarded following DARI procedure
Each researcher may file a claim during the call period. If the claim is accept, it became possible to have access to the HPC machines in the three nation computing center (CINES, IDRIS and TGCC).
- From the end of 2017, there’ll be a chain of alloctions of one year every 6 months :
- Odd Allocations : november to october
- Even allocations : from may to april
- Throughout the year user’s who have burn all theirs hours can ask for complementary hours on the DARI site.
They can ask too, throughout the year, for a preparatory access to test their codes for a future DARI allocation.
- Should you require computational hours on the CINES hosts outside of the DARI procedure, you can make a specific request to the CINES director, filling this form and sending it to email@example.com.
- Consumption tracking
- All year long, you can check your consumption on this site http://reser.cines.fr/.
You are also able to track the computers overall activity.
More generally, any information request can be made by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The HPC department support team remains available to help you with your applications parallelization and execution on our computers.
