“Orion” Cluster
Orion is used for running big production jobs with in-house codes that do not need frequent library updates. Orion is the front-end for a 64 node (128 processor) AMD Opteron cluster. Each node has dual Opteron 244 (1.8GHz) processors with 4Gb of RAM and an 80Gb hard drive. The OS on the cluster is Linux 2.4.21-281 and the interconnect is Wulfkit (node to node latency = 3.5E-6 sec, node to node bandwidth = 200 Mbytes/sec).
A total of 3.0 T of storage is available for access during simulations. Simulation results are then backed-up to a separate archival mass-storage system.


“Canis” Cluster
Canis was designed for use by the students and staff of the Center for learning and for running software that need continuous updates of libraries and compilers. Canis is the front-end for a 20 node (40 processor) AMD Opteron cluster. Each node has dual Opteron 244 (1.8GHz) processors with 2Gb of RAM and an 80Gb hard drive. The OS on the cluster is Linux 2.6.9-22 and the interconnect is Ethernet.
