CISL recommends running small jobs that use only CPUs on the Casper cluster’s high-throughput computing (HTC) nodes
. Casper has 64 HTC nodes specifically for running small batch jobs.
It also has:
- More shared resources than the Cheyenne share queue
- A far higher concurrent-use limit for CPU cores than Cheyenne: 468 vs. 36.
- More available memory, plus NVMe swap for overflow.
