DN nodes


We have 70 IBM System X iDataPlex dx360 M3 Server nodes, these nodes are not restricted to any user group and as a result perform a diverse range of workloads. Although these are busy nodes, the wait times are usually short due to the large overall number of cores provided by these nodes.

These are our oldest nodes and do not support AVX/AVX2 processor extensions. If your code requires these specific extensions, adding -l avx2 to your job script will ensure that the job avoids using these nodes.
