Farnam

Louise

The Farnam Cluster is named for Louise Whitman Farnam, the first woman to graduate from the Yale School of Medicine, class of 1916.

Farnam is a shared-use resource for the Yale School of Medicine (YSM). It consists of a variety of compute nodes networked over ethernet and mounts several shared filesystems.


Partitions and Hardware

Farnam is made up of several kinds of compute nodes. We group them into (sometimes overlapping) Slurm partitions meant to serve different purposes. By combining the --partition and --constraint Slurm options you can more finely control what nodes your jobs can run on.

Public Partitions

See each tab below for more information about the available common use partitions.

Use the general partition for most batch jobs. This is the default if you don't specify one with --partition.

Request Defaults

Unless specified, your jobs will run with the following options to srun and sbatch options for this partition.

--time=1-00:00:00 --nodes=1 --ntasks=1 --cpus-per-task=1 --mem-per-cpu=5120

Job Limits

Jobs submitted to the general partition are subject to the following limits:

Limit Value
Max job time limit 30-00:00:00
Maximum CPUs per group 400
Maximum memory per group 2.50T
Maximum CPUs per user 200
Maximum memory per user 1280G

Private Partitions

With few exceptions, jobs submitted to pi_ partitions are not considered when calculating your group's Fairshare. Your group can purchase additional hardware for private use, which we will make available as a pi_groupname partition. These nodes are purchased by you, but supported and administered by us. After vendor support expires, we retire compute nodes. Compute nodes can range from $10K to upwards of $50K depending on your requirements. If you are interested in purchasing nodes for your group, please contact us.

Storage

Farnam has access to a number of GPFS filesystems. /gpfs/ysm is Farnam's primary filesystem where Home, Project, and Scratch60 directories are located. For more details on the different storage spaces, see our Cluster Storage documentation.

You can check your current storage usage & limits by running the getquota command. Your ~/project and ~/scratch60 directories are shortcuts. Get a list of the absolute paths to your directories with the mydirectories command. If you want to share data in your Project or Scratch directory, see the permissions page.

Warning

Files stored in scratch60 are purged if they are older than 60 days. You will receive an email alert one week before they are deleted.
