To be eligible to participate on Frontera, your application must have already successfully run on at least 2,048 nodes in the "large" Queue on Frontera.  For access to the Frontera "large" queue, please submit a ticket with scaling data. On the last day of Texascale Days, Monday, February 12, 2 hour blocks will be available for large-scale benchmarking efforts rather than production runs.  The other days will be set aside for production runs.  On these days, each project will have dedicated access to the number of nodes requested for a 24 hour period starting at 1000 AM CST.To request to participate, please fill out and submit the form: https://forms.gle/YVub1ShUXjZsgbnP7Please submit any questions you may have through the TACC Consulting System or feedback form:  https://tacc.utexas.edu/portal/tickets

This will impact all TACC researchers who use Globus and will require you to update your profile to continue using the Globus service. Use the following steps to update your profile: Find you ePPN associated with your Globus access by going to https://cilogon.org/ and logging in. You will find your ePPN under User Attributes. Login to your TACC user profile here: https://accounts.tacc.utexas.edu. Select ePPN on the left menu and then enter your ePPN in the field at the top of the page and save. Allow at least 15 minutes for your change to propagate through the system. After you have completed these steps, you will be able to use the Globus File Manager (https://app.globus.org) as usual. Please make sure you select an endpoint that has "GCS v5.4" in the title. If you encounter any issues, please submit a ticket here: https://tacc.utexas.edu/portal/tickets
