The ELvis cluster (formerly named the RVS cluster) consists of 9 render nodes and a separate login node, each with the following specs:
The login node,
elvis.surfsara.nl, is only meant for compiling software, testing, inspecting data before starting visualization and starting interactive visualization jobs. The actual visualization jobs will run on the node s37n1 - s37n9.
The scheduling system uses a number of queues to make sure several users can work on the cluster at the same time, while still allowing almost the full cluster to be used by a single user that needs a large amount of memory, or for very long jobs on a few nodes (like producing animation frames). Note that you don't have to explicitly request a certain queue, the choice will be made depending on the job request.
