AIDA General Information

  • Aida is a private queue from within the atlas2 cluster with restricted access to the rab38_0001 group.
  • The aida queue contains 6 compute nodes (c0017-c0022)
  • The aida2 queue contains 5 compute nodes (c0071,73-76)
  • Head node: (access via ssh)
    • Full atlas2 cluster information
    • Open HPC deployment running Centos 7.4.1708
    • Cluster scheduler: slurm 20.11.8
    • /home (15TB) directory server (nfs exported to all cluster nodes)
    • Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5-2637 v4 @ 3.5GHz; supports vector extensions up to AVX2
  • Cluster Status: Ganglia.
  • Please send any questions and report problems to:


  • All nodes have a 10GB ethernet connection for eth0 on a private net served out from the atlas2 head node.
  • All nodes have an Infiniband connection:
  • Type: MT4119 ((EDR speed, 25Gbits/sec)
