Monitoring Usage

There are two general methods to monitor the usage of time for a project:

1.  Monitor through https://monitoring.sdcc.bnl.gov/pub/allocation/lqcd.html.   This is a web portal that shows usage for USQCD sub accounts on the 3 clusters.

For the 2019-2020 allocation year, all USQCD projects for IC, Skylake, KNL clusters are listed under the sub-option lqcd-19-20, lqcd-sky-19-20, lqcd-knl-19-20, respectively.   Allocation units for all 3 clusters are sky core hours.

The same information can be obtained also by
/hpcgpfs01/software/lqcd/utils/bin/lquota
command.

2.  The SLURM terminal command sshare and sreport can be used to generate finer grained reports about the usage.  For example. to see a breakdown of the usage under the posnpr-knl-19-20 account from October 1, 2019 through Feb. 29, 20202, this command:

/usr/bin/sreport cluster AccountUtilizationByUser account=posnpr-knl-19-20 start=2019-10-01-00:00 end=2020-02-29-23:59 format=Accounts,Login,Used

returns
