The HPC facilities at CSUC are comprised of three different machines integrated in a single queue system. The batch manager automatically assigns a job to computing nodes in all three machines depending on demanded resources and availability. Jobs submitted from the login node are automatically assigned to the most suitable node.

The queue system runs on IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility (LSF) software. You can find a starter's guide to LSF here.
