Code_Aster on University parallel clusters

You can use Code_Aster on the following University parallel clusters:

  • RedQueen- each job can use up to 16 GB RAM and 8 CPUs
  • RedQueen2- each job can use up to 24 GB RAM and 12 CPUs

Only OpenMP is active for the moment. OpenMPI is up the way (an experimental OpenMPI version is available on RedQueen). The software is installed in /software/Code_Aster.

Here you can find useful informations on how using Code_Aster on University parallel clusters.
