Announcement about experimental operation to effective use of HOKUSAI

In this fiscal year, GW-MPC is relatively unoccupied, and some projects have run out of allocated core hours. Therefore, in order to make effective use of the system, we will begin experimental operation that the projects exhausted the allocated core hours of GW-MPC will be lowered the priority and allowed execution.


We will add core hours to the projects which exhausted core hours of GW-MPC. No application required.

In order not to disturb the job execution of the projects which has not run out of allocated core hours, the priority (fair share value) is set to an extremely low value, so the jobs will only run if there are no
other jobs in the queue or using idle resources by the backfill function.

This operation is experimental and will be deliberated on the Special Committee of Research Environment in March for the after the next fiscal year.
