BlueBEAR Standard Resources

Total available resources

The majority of BlueBEAR’s nodes are referred to as “shared” resources and are available to all users of the system. In addition to these standard shared nodes, all Dedicated Resources nodes are also available to all users, but only for jobs with a duration of less than 10 minutes (via the bbshort QOS) and when they are not in use by their associated projects.

The total ‘size’ of BlueBEAR is:
