Additional SMP nodes: short-term fix for busy cluster

Dear Users,

To help address the recent high utilization on the SMP cluster, we have added 20 legacy Intel Sandy Bridge nodes to SMP.  Each node has 16 cores and 64 GB of RAM.  To access these nodes, you will need to modify your job submission script to target the legacy partition:

#SBATCH --cluster=smp

#SBATCH --partition=legacy

 

You can use the sinfo command to gauge the availability of nodes within various partitions:
