The SCS Facilities has various types of accounts that map to various level of user support. Most CNBC users have their lowest tiered account. This means that these users do not have the level of support where they can submit help requests directly to the SCS Facility help desk. If you have a SCS account due to being affiliated with the SCS department, you may have a full support account. However, everyone who is a user on the CNBC Cluster should submit Psycho cluster support requests to the CNBC administrator.

Account Policies

The cluster is available to lab members and collaborators of the PI paying the CNBC cluster support charges but should should be done within reason. Work done on the cluster should be for the research done within the bounds of the collaboration. Anything short of this would be taking advantage of a resource that is paid for and supported by the CNBC.

 2) If the processing takes too much memory or cpu, the head node could crash. This would cause an inconvenience for everyone using the cluster at the time of the crash. If the work is done on a compute node, only the users on that particular compute node will be burdened.
