Policy for Use of Space in /projects on Peregrine

January 11, 2018

NREL HPC allocations include storage space in the /projects filesystem. However, /projects is a shared resource and project leads should periodically monitor usage by running alloc_tracker.

HPC Operations will notify allocation leads if utilization exceeds the allocated amount. For allocations which also include node hours, job queue priority will be reduced until utilization falls within the allocated space. If utilization remains out of compliance after seven (7) days, the HPC job queue will stop accepting or running jobs associated with the project allocation until utilization decreases to the allocated capacity.
