Allocations for the computational resources on KSL systems are being managed using a program called "sbank." Users have access to this system via the "sb" command.

Refund Policy

The enhanced complexity of the new-generation supercomputer at KSL increases the probability that a job might be affected by a failure. Therefore, we strongly encourage all users of the system to write regular checkpoints from their applications to avoid losses of CPU time when a job is aborted. There will be no refund of CPU time in the case of a failed job!
