The 2019-20 rates for the Armis2 cluster have been approved. These rates represent cost recovery for Armis2 and do not include any support your unit may choose to provide. Billing for jobs will begin on January 6th, 2020. For clarity, this means that jobs running through January 5th, 2020 will continue to be at no charge; jobs will begin to incur charges on January 6th (as soon as the cluster returns from winter maintenance).
|Partition||Rate Per Minute||Rate Per Month||CPU Unit||Memory Unit||GPU Unit|
The monthly rate is based on a 30-day month; per-minute rates are included for reference. Charges are based on the percentage of the machine your job requests (in terms of the amount of cores, memory, and GPUs) and its actual runtime.
The Medical School and School of Public Health (while funds last) will cost-share 44% of the Armis 2 rates for sponsored research accounts for researchers in these units who are paying to use Armis 2 on unit shortcodes.
ARC-TS is working on providing a command-line and web-based method to calculate job charges to assist you in cost estimation.
Example jobs and their charges¹
To help illustrate how the job charges work, here are some examples of differently-sized jobs.
