We are glad to announce that, with generous funding support from the department, SCRP now offers access to NVIDIA A100 datacenter GPUs. Blog post with benchmarks and instructions here.
We have replaced the detective components of
scrp-login. All services have resumed.
scrp-loginappears to have suffered a critical hardware failure and has gone offline.
- Please use
scrp-login-2.econ.cuhk.edu.hkfor the time being.
- Slurm and Jupyter (Slurm) jobs are unaffected by this outage.
/archiveis inaccessible because it is physically hosted on scrp-login.
- We should be able to replace any faulty hardware and bring the node back online on Monday (Nov. 14).
- Please use
You can now launch Jupyter—and by extension, the web GUI of MATLAB and R—on a compute node through the browser. This allows the interactive use of GPUs, more CPU cores and more memory on any device.
We will be conducting our annual account cleanup tomorrow at 10am. The following operations will be carried out:
The cluster’s SSL certificates got unexpectedly revoked before expiry this morning due to vendor change, resulting in the two login nodes becoming inaccessible. We have just obtained new certificates and all services have been restored.
Some users have reported that they have been unable to open existing MATLAB scripts in the MATLAB GUI since the last maintenance. It appears that the last MATLAB update has changed certain settings and if you delete your MATLAB settings, it will work again. Instructions below.
You can now switch input methods in remote desktop. Please follow the instructions here.
Summer 2022 maintenace has completed and the cluster is now line. List of changes below.
scrp-login has been rebooted and has regained outbound internet access. We have also taken this opportunity to implement the following changes:
R has been optimized to run certain linear algebra operations faster. Details here.
Xstata was launching noticably slower on
scrp-loginthan other nodes. This has been fixed.
You can now transfer files over remote desktop. Please follow the instructions under File Transfer.
