EMF nodes


We have 8 IBM Flex System x240 Compute Nodes for high memory jobs. You should only use these nodes for jobs requiring more than 128GB RAM.

CPU Instruction Set does not support AVX2

The processor supports AVX instruction set extensions, but not AVX2; code that has already been compiled and optimised for newer hardware may in some circumstances require re-compiling to work on nodes without AVX2 extensions.
