Usage for Scientific Research
For accessing and using the Lichtenberg cluster as a scientist and for scientific research, the following prerequisites are necessary:
Usually the project application is submitted by the project manager. NHR-N and NHR-L projects are scrutinized scientifically (according to the conditions of the NHR4CES Resource Allocation Board ( )). RAB
Small projects will just be checked technically for feasibility.
2. User Account
A user account must be set up (based on TU-ID), activated and assigned to a project.
Your user account (2) can be extended even without valid/running project, for you to have access to your research data even after end of a project (eg. to transfer and back up data from the file systems of the HPC to your own storage).
Do not share your user account (neither password nor
ssh keys)! Collaboration is permitted only by being members in a common project.
In order to have a smooth and efficient start in working with the Lichtenberg-HPC, we advise all new users to attend the “Introduction to the Lichtenberg High Performance Computer” mentioned below.
