General Information

Tardis3 cluster is a reinstallation of TARDIS Cluster using OpenHPC 2/CentOS 8. TARDIS Cluster nodes will eventually be migrated to this new cluster.


  • The cluster scheduler is Slurm. Currently 32 new Dell R440 servers are configured to be in the "c8" partition/queue with no time limits. c1 to c7 queues will be added as the nodes are migrated from the TARDIS Cluster. See Slurm documentation page for details.
  • Remember, hyperthreading is enabled on the cluster, so Slurm considers each physical core to consist of two logical CPUs.
  • Partitions (queues):
Name Physical Cores HT/Slurm CPUs RAM Infiniband Time Limit
c8 40 80 95 EDR (100 Gb/s) no limit


Python Virtual Environment

Use python virtual environment to install modules and configure python for running your python code.

Create Virtual Environment

You can create as many virtual environments, each in their own directory, as needed.

python3 -m venv <your virtual environment directory>

Activate Virtual Environment

You need to activate a virtual environment before using it:

source <your virtual environment directory>/bin/activate

Install Python Modules Using pip

After activating your virtual environment, you can now install python modules for the activated environment:

  • It's always a good idea to update pip first:
pip install --upgrade pip
  • Install the module:
pip install <module name>
  • List installed python modules in the environment:
pip list modules
  • Examples: Install tensorflow and keras like this:
-bash-4.2$ python3 -m venv tensorflow
-bash-4.2$ source tensorflow/bin/activate
(tensorflow) -bash-4.2$ pip install --upgrade pip
