Eagle System Configuration

 Learn about the Eagle system configuration.

Architecture Description

The Eagle system is a high-performance computing (HPC) system with different types of servers (nodes) configured to run compute intensive and parallel computing jobs. All nodes run the Linux operating system: RedHat Linux or the derivative CentOS distribution. The nodes and storage are connected by a high speed 100GB/s EDR InfiniBand network. A brief description of the configuration and features of the nodes, interconnect and file systems is provided below.

Interconnect

All nodes and storage are connected using an enhanced 8-dimensional hypercube topology that provides a bisection bandwidth of 26.4 terabytes/s.

Filesystems

Eagle has NFS file systems for home directories and application software as well as a 14 petabyte high-speed Lustre file system for parallel I/O.
