Forms to Request Changes to Computers, Jobs, or Accounts

Software Installation Request Form
Use this form to request a software/library/application installation on a center computer.

Relaxed Queue Limit Request Form
Use this form to request deviations from the standard batch queue policy. Typical requests would be for increased priority for one (or several) jobs or an increased wall-time limit.

System Reservation Request Form
Use this form to request dedicated access to some or all of a machine. If granted, no other users/projects will be running on the processors that have been reserved. Please note that if granted, your project will be charged for the entire dedicated time and not just the time used by your jobs. Thus, a reservation for 100 nodes on Titan for 48 hours will result in a charge of 144,000 core-hours (100 nodes × 30 “cores” per node x 48 hours). A reservation differs from increased priority requests and increased wall-time requests in that those requests must still wait in the batch queue. A reservation sets aside a set of processors for a user (or group of users) with a definite start and end time. Additionally, the reservation differs from traditional batch jobs in the way it is charged against an allocation (described above).

Disk Quota Increase Request Form
Use this form to request an increased disk quota.

Purge Exemption Request Form
Use this form to request temporary relief from the scratch disk purge.
