New Head Node

We're embarking on a transition to a new head/login node name cottontail2. This server will be running Rocky 8 operating system. Early design ideas can be found at Cottontail2, all pre-pandemic. We are staying with a 1G ethernet network as we could not find 10G switches. Maybe in the near term we can upgrade.

Two new compute nodes (n100, n101) will be set up in a test queue. They each have four RTX5000 gpus which have the same architecture as our other gpus so all compiled software should work. These gpus have 16G memory foot print (twice as large as other gpus we have).

OpenHPC will be deployed next and I'll make some notes. We will to Slurm scheduler. (Slurm Test Env for users and Slurm Test Env techie page). Any old hardware that can be reimaged with Rocky 8 will be migrated to Slurm using Warewulf. But that all will take some time.

Some pictures below.

Config Recipe

Steps. “Ala n37” … so the RTX nodes are similar to the K20 nodes and we can put the local software in place. See K20 Redo page and exx96 Recipe for CentOS 7
