High Performance Computing

Prioritization Policy

The HPC job scheduler utilizes fair-share metrics for prioritizing HPC jobs. The scheduler maintains high overall system utilization while assuring that mission critical work runs first.

Under special circumstances and upon request, the Advanced Scientific Computing director can authorize certain users or jobs to be elevated in priority for short, pre-determined periods of time. To request special consideration, submit an HPC support ticket with details and justification to hpcsupport@inl.gov.
