Retiring Blues GPU Nodes on August 1, 2021

LCRC Users,

We will soon be retiring what is left of the Blues GPU nodes in the ‘biggpu’ queue. These nodes are slated to be turned off on August 1, 2021. These nodes and cards are very old now and vendor support for them has since ended. We encourage any LCRC users with GPU needs to move to our Swing GPU cluster.

LCRC users, since April 1st , now have access to 6x nodes with 8x NVIDIA A100 40GB GPUs each. PIs can request time as needed for Swing anytime at our accounts page just as you do for Bebop and Blues. Full details in the link below:

If you have any trouble moving to Swing or have any other questions, please contact support@lcrc.anl.gov.

Thanks!
LCRC Support Team
