      Frontera Texascale Days - February 2024

      Frontera will be reserved for Texascale Days - very large scale runs of at least half system size (3500 - 4096 nodes) or full system size (7000 - 8192 nodes) during the 2nd week of February (9th to 12th) before the Frontera maintenance on February 13.   

      This event allows our researchers the opportunity to work on problems that may not be possible at the smaller scale. 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:
