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.
Accessing the high memory nodes
These nodes have been restricted to only allow jobs which pass the
-l highmem option in the job script.
|EMF||IBM System X240|
|Processor||2 x 12 Core Intel E5-2695 v2|
|Clock speed||Base 2.40GHz ; Turbo 3.20GHz|
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.
