    "The computational hour can also be referred to as a “core-hour” or “virtual-core-hour.” The system is configured in such a manner as to allow more computational-hours than the number of physical processors in the system. This virtualization provides a greater computational capacity than if each physical processing core was utilized individually, therefore minimizing queue wait times for jobs to complete. Each virtual core is assigned up to 8GB of RAM, however alternate RAM configurations are available as-needed." "Cluster Operating System is Red Hat Enterprise Linux v. 6.4, and this version is installed on all compute nodes. Alternate OS installations are available on an as-needed basis, by request only. Cluster software is either loaded on the individual node hard drives by HPC staff, providing the best performance, or is run from a client’s share on the SONAS file system, generally not requiring any HPC staff involvement. Clients needing software installation should place a service request in the PMACS HPC queue, or e-mail to pmacshpc@med.upenn.edu." "The PMACS HPC uses the IBM Platform LSF job scheduling system."
