Nutzungsbedingungen / Terms Of Use

Attention: Only the German version of the Termes of Use is binding.

These new Terms of Use become valid from October 1, 2016: HPC-Nutzungsbedingungen_20160901.pdf

The key points are are:
  • For support reasons, we store your contact data according to our IDM. (Will be anonymized at least 15 months after the cancellation of the HPC login.) The data of the HPC project (incl. contact of project leader) will be kept for further reference. *Our HPC systems may only be used according to the project description.
  • We have new responsibilities for the project leader:
    • She has to assign a team member with an HPC login as the technical project administrator. She can do this herself – if she has a login at our systems.
    • The project leader or the administrator will have to add/remove members to their project. She has access to accounting data for her project.
  • These issues cover the data storage in our systems:
    • Upon request, the project leader or the administrator can be given access to a user's directory.
    • The scratch file systems (/tmp, /scratch, /fastfs, /fasttemp) are for temporary use only. After a certain time, files may be removed automatically (for /tmp after 7 days, parallel scratch: after 100 days).
    • Before a user leaves a project the leader/administrator has to store away worthy data. For this, the storage services of ZIH (long term storage, intermediate archive) can be used.
    • After the cancellation of a login, the data of this user will be gzipped and stored away. 15 months later it will be deleted.
  • The HPC user agrees to follow the instructions and hints of the support team. In case of non-compliance, she can be disabled for the batch system or banned from the system.
Novelties September 2016:
  • For computations, use /scratch/... as work directory! /* This is no novelty but very important for the usability of our systems.*/
  • For HPC related research ZIH will collect and analyze performance data. Anonymized, it might be shared with research partners.
  • Log data will be kept for long term analyzes.

These key points are only a brief summary. If in doubt, please consult the German original.
