Building WE-UQ server on alternative HPC
« on: August 07, 2020, 06:20:51 PM »
We are researchers from Canada and have only base allocation on Stampede2, which may not be adequate to run many CFD simulations.

However, we have access to a Canadian supercomputer, Niagara. Do you know if it is currently possible to build a WE-UQ server on an alternative HPC which runs on Linux CentOS 7?
Is there any complication in doing so?

Thank you!

the problem will be hooking up the frontend with the backend. currently the UI creates some files, these are transferred to stampede and then run there. when running there it runs OpenFOAm and then a program called dakota. Both the front end and backend could be built, the problem child is the file transfer and launching a job. These are done using TACC's Tapis interface using http requests made using the curl lib. You could of course manually transfer files and launch jobs on the HPC.
