Welcome to Eric at LSU

31-Aug-2007

Eric is a 5 TF, 128 node (512 processor) LONI Linux cluster using LONI LDAP 
accounts.  We welcome users that will use the system and report problems to
sys-help@loni.org, but realize that are continually working to improve the
cluster.

Eric  has its own /home disk.  Quotas are now enabled at 5 GB.  Please do
not use the /home volume for batch job I/O, use the /work volume 
instead.  Please limit the number of files per directory to 10,000.
Total /work disk usage is limited to 100 GB.

Please to do not run your compute jobs on the headnodes.

6-Feb-2009

Eric has been upgraded to use a new kernel, a new OFED InfiniBand version,
and a new version of Lustre.  We hope this will improve Eric's reliability.
You should recompile all of your personal applications, redo your softenv
keys, and let us know about any problems you find with the upgraded
cluster.  Thanks
