GCS test project on SuperMUC-NG


  • Simplified application: Only abstract needed (up to 1,000 characters)
  • Can last up to 24 months
  • Rolling call: applications can be sent throughout the year
  • Fast review process
  • Budget of 300,000 core hours:
    - compile your application
    - test if your applicaton works
    - perform scaling tests (needed for regular and large scale applications)
  • The goal of a test project should be to demonstrate that the code runs on at least 816 cores (17 nodes) per job (minimum for general queue)

Please note: GCS test projects can be converted to GCS regular projects or GCS large scale projects. A new application process is needed in both cases!

Application process

The image shows the process of applying for a GCS test project on SuperMUC-NG. All applications for projects on SuperMUC are managed through the GCS-JARDS tool, hosted by GCS, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing.

After finalizing your application within the GCS-JARDS website, you will be asked to print out and sign the "Principal Investigator’s Agreement for Access to HPC resources". Scan the signed document and email it to HPC-Benutzerverwaltung@lrz.de.

Once your project is approved, your SuperMUC-NG project will be created by LRZ. GCS-JARDS is used to manage the review process, collect status reports, final reports, dissemination material, and to manage project extensions.
