General Priority (No Action Required)
When you receive an account you will automatically be assigned a ucb-general share. ucb-general is a great place to run smaller jobs or to use to test and benchmark your code. ucb-general users have a lower priority. To receive higher priority, you can apply for an allocation to run on our systems.
Increased Priority (Proposal Required)
To submit an allocation to Summit, please complete the following:
Once uploaded, a committee will review your request and make suggestions (if needed). The committee meets bi-weekly.
Requests for larger allocations will need more detailed justification. As a general guideline, a request for 300K SU might require a two-page proposal, while a 1M+ SU request might require three to five pages.
