Special Queue: GPU Computing


The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) equipped nodes are not part of the general queue and require special steps to access. These nodes are only for GPU enabled workloads; any other jobs found running on these nodes will be terminated.

Since the primary resource of interest is the GPU, these nodes are setup with only one slot. There is no parallel usage of the GPU nodes.

Interactive Access

It is possible to access a GPU node interactively via the following command:
$ qlogin -q gpu.q -l gpu

Job Script

Use the following to enable a job script to run on the GPU queue:
#$ -N gpuJob
....
#$ -q gpu.q
#$ -l gpu
....
