User documentation for the PLEIADES cluster at the University of Wuppertal
A BeeGFS cluster file system is installed on fugg1.pleiades.uni-wuppertal.de login machine and on all cluster worker nodes, i.e. the file system is shared among all nodes and can be used to develop code and to save output files from cluster jobs.
In general, no „copy constructions“ are needed.
A group quota according to the share of each participating group has been applied.
The quota can be checked in our monitoring system or with
beegfs-ctl --getquota --gid <groupname> Quota information for storage pool Default (ID: 1): user/group || size || chunk files name | id || used | hard || used | hard --------------|------||------------|------------||---------|--------- <groupname>| <gid>|| 51.50 TiB| 60.00 TiB|| 12345678|unlimited

We provide an example job script that automatically cleans up your files in
/tmp in any case.
Heads up! WHEP users
