Using Abaqus on the Login Nodes
Please limit interactive processing to short, non-intensive usage. Use non-interactive batch jobs or GUI-interactive VNC jobs for resource-intensive and/or multiple-core processing.
Using Abaqus on the Compute Nodes
Non-interactive batch jobs on the compute nodes allows for resource-demanding processing. Non-interactive jobs have higher limits on the number of cores, amount of memory, and runtime length.
Using the Abaqus on the VNC Nodes
The VNC nodes allow for usage of the a graphical user interface (GUI) without disrupting other users.
VNC jobs and GUI usage do come with restrictions. All VNC jobs are limited to a single node (20 cores, 64GB or 256GB). There are fewer VNC nodes than comparable compute nodes. And nearly all processing that is done within the GUI can be done more efficiently within a non-interactive job once the initial legwork is done.
