External Usage Stats

HPCVL provides resources to many researchers external to the four CFI applicant institutions. The graph below shows external usage of the CFI funded CPU cluster at the central site. The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI),the Ontario Innovation Trust (OIT), and the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation have funded the resources at that site and the usage is represented as the percent of the usage of that equipment. Currently, 40 CPUs of the 1008 CPU cores Sun Fire cluster are set aside as workup and test resources and are not included in the percent usage of the cluster.

The total number of installed CPUs in the Sun Fire cluster is 1008 with the additional CPUs being funded through the Sun Microsystems. The total disk storage capacity is 160 TB of T3 StorEdge.
