The RVS system consists of 20 compute/render nodes and a separate login node, each with the following specs:
The login node,
rvs.surfsara.nl (or known internally as
v40-1), is only meant for compiling software, testing, inspecting data before starting visualization, etc.
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.
