  1. All Linux HPC users for engineering applications need to be given access to service-hpc-pilot.
  2. All engineering applications belong to the Electronics Design SE. It would be good to create a new FE different from Windows HPC to be able to give user support to application specific issues in Linux HPC. For the time being, we continue using Windows HPC FE.

Should Licence queuing be mandatory for all applications? Which ones have a license limit?

KBs Comments
KB0004192: What kind of HPC resources are available at CERN? LSF reference updated. It would be good to explain Windows HPC, Linux HPC and migration plans
KB0004541: How to access and use the batch HPC cluster  
KB0004975: Who can grant access to the batch HPC cluster? Harmonise this with KB0003574: How to request access to Engineering High Performance Computing infrastructure (Windows HPC)

Windows HPC infrastructure

KB0003575: Which engineering applications are supported on the Windows HPC cluster To be updated. It would be good to mention those applications that have been already migrated to Linux HPC
KB0004170: How to judge if the Windows HPC request shall be accepted
