Back to the Institute of Botany & MetaCentrum, usage of the computing resources and see also work on the cluster.

Access to the computing cluster of IBOT for employees and collaborators

  1. Complete the application for the MetaCentrum (you can register under any organization, not solely IBOT).
  2. Join the ibot group by contacting the cluster’s administrator. Membership of this group is not mandatory for using the computing resources, but grants a higher priority.
  3. It is recommended that computational tasks are prepared on the frontend node tilia.ibot.cas.cz (alias tilia.metacentrum.cz), although this is not a requirement.
  4. Data can be stored on the Průhonice data storage (again not a requirement) at /storage/pruhonice1-ibot/.
  5. At submission to the computing queue, by adding to the qsub command the -q ibot parameter, the analysis will be carried on our cluster, e.g. qsub -l walltime=1:0:0 -q ibot -l select=1:ncpus=1:mem=1gb:scratch_local=1gb -m abe script.sh.

Employees and students from other organizations can submit tasks and run any applications on the Průhonice cluster using the same requesting commands and following the same rules as for any other node in the MetaCentrum.
