Fionn Requirements

The following equation should be used as a template to determine the total number of core hours required.
Core Hrs Requested = Number Core Hrs on Thin Component + (3.2 * Number Core Hrs on Shared Memory Component) + (2.24 * Number Core Hrs on Accelerated Component)
A detailed description of each non zero component request is required in the text box below.

(CPU hours)

Do you intend to use the shared memory partition? Note: Use of a shared memory core is charged at 3.2 times a regular compute core on Fionn.

Yes No

Do you intend to use the accelerated partition? Note: Use of a shared memory core is charged at 2.24 times a regular compute core on Fionn.

Yes No

Other requirements


Further details for Class A projects only

Support requirements

Do you intend to use an existing parallel code for production (e.g. an ICHEC-supported package, your own code or some other community-developed application)?

Yes No

If "No", how do you plan to optimise the codes to run on parallel architecture?

Within your own group
With ICHEC support
