Monsoon is a capacity-type, Linux-based computer cluster with 2860 Intel Xeon cores, 24TB of memory, and 16 NVIDIA GPUs: K80, and P100. It has been designed to be flexible and handle a diverse set of research requirements. 103 individual systems are interconnected via FDR Infiniband at a rate of 56Gbps and <.07us latency. Cluster nodes have access to 1.3PB of shared storage of type scratch (lustre), and long-term project space (ZFS). Monsoon has a measured peak performance of 107 teraflops.
Cluster nodes are x86_64 systems running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Nodes in the cluster are diskless and hold essential libraries in memory.
Job scheduling is performed by Slurm. Job priorities are currently based upon a fair-share policy.
