The 2019-20 rates for the Great Lakes Cluster have been approved. These rates represent cost recovery for the Great Lakes Cluster, and do not include any support your unit may choose to provide.
|Partition||Rate Per Minute||Rate Per Month||CPU Cores||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.
ARC-TS is working on providing a command-line script to calculate job charges to assist you in cost estimation.
