Configuring Compute Node to use Partial resources of physical server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have one single physical server with 8 cores which I want to use as HPC compute node. Can I configure this Compute node to use only 6 cores from the 8 available cores? I want to keep remaining two cores for other external services running on my server. Please let me know.

  • yes, you can. Try the over/under Subscribed Cores.

    And with latest HPC Pack 2012 R2 Update 3 QFE, you can set subscribed cores in admin GUI. In you case, you need to set it to 6 subscribed cores.
