Limiting the number of cpus available for use
A number of the algorithms in the CLC Server will, in the case of large jobs, use all the cpu available on your system to make the analysis as fast as possible. The maximum number of cpu that can be used can be configured:
- Master nodes
- Configured via the web administrative interface as described in Model III: Single Server setup3.1.
- Job nodes
- Configured via the web administrative interface as described in Model I: Master server with dedicated job nodes.
- Grid nodes
- Controlled by the grid scheduler. Further information is available in Controlling the number of cores utilized by grid nodes.
- The method of using of a cpu.properties file to limit CPU usage on master nodes and job nodes is deprecated.
