HPC and Globus Usage

GHub makes use of computing and data storage facilities at University at Buffalo's CCR to run certain tools and house the largest datasets. For a summary of GHub's usage statistics of these resources, please read on.

  2. Globus Usage Statistics

HPC Job Counts

Some of GHub's computational tools use the high-performance computing (HPC) resources housed at University at Buffalo's Center for Computational Research. Counts of jobs that GHub tools submitted to these resources in the previous quarter are shown below. For further information, refer to CCR's XDMoD utility.
