Using GPUs on SCIAMA
See Submitting Jobs on SCIAMA if you are not already familiar with how to do this.
Using GPUs interactively
There are four GPU-enabled nodes: gpu01 - gpu04, with 2 A100 GPU's each.
To use them interactively, type:
Submitting batch GPU jobs
To run batch jobs on GPU nodes, ensure your job submission script includes a request for GPUs:
The GPU's on gpu02 are partitioned in to smaller chunks to allow more than one job to run on the GPUs, rather than 1 job taking the whole 40GB GPU.
The GPU's are partitioned as 7x 1g.5gb, 2x 2g.10gb and 1x 3g.20gb. To use a smaller partition state --gres:1g.5gb:1 in the command or --gres=gpu:1g.5gb:1 in a batch file, this will allocate 1x 5GB MIG partition. You can use multiple partions on one GPU or across 2 GPU's with the following:
The following commands will help to show which MIG's are available and what is currently in use or waiting to be used.
List of GPU's and MIG's are configured:
You can use multiple partitions on one GPU or across 2 GPU's with the following:
#This will use all 7 partitions on one GPU
#This will use the whole of GPU 1
#Uses 1 partition of 10GB on GPU 1 and 4 partitions of 5GB on GPU 0
