SGI UV2000 (venus)

The SGI UV2000 is a shared memory system based on Intel Sandy Bridge processors. It is operated by the Linux operating system SLES 11 SP 3 with a kernel version 3.x.

Number of CPU sockets 64
Physical cores per sockets 8
Total number of cores 512
Total memory 8 TiB
From our experience, most parallel applications benefit from using the additional hardware hyperthreads.


Venus uses the same HOME file system as all our other HPC installations. For computations, please use /scratch.
