There are several user types on INL’s HPC system, and a user can be in one of several states depending on their level of activity and actions they take regarding their account.
A “user account” is associated with an individual user of INL HPC resources. Users are granted user accounts at their request, if eligible, and under the condition of agreement to all HPC policies, including the Appropriate Use Policy. User accounts expire as outlined in the table below or when the contractual arrangement between the user’s employer and INL ends, whichever is sooner. Users are responsible for moving their data before their account is archived.
There are three HPC user account types, listed below. The user’s affiliation determines the account type.
|User Type||Home Directory Quota||Accessible Cluster||Description|
|internal||1.5 TB||General||This user type is for INL employees. These accounts do not expire during the employee’s tenure at INL. Users have full access to general HPC resources.|
|external||1 TB||General, but may be limited at any time||This user type is for HPC users who are not INL employees, e.g., users from other national laboratories, industry or academia. These accounts expire on an annual basis but can be renewed with approved use. Users may be granted full access to general HPC resources.|
|intern||500 GB||General, but may be limited at any time||This user type is for INL interns. These accounts expire when the INL internship ends. Users may be granted full access to HPC resources.|
