meesters [GPU Queues] - fixed broken link

-To use a GPU you have to explicitely reserv it in the bsub call.+====== ​GPU Queues ======
  
--R "​select[cuda=1],rusage[cuda=1]"+There are three different ​[[partitions|partitions (SLURM lingo for '​queues'​)]] inside the cluster that support gpu usage: The titan-Queues (''​titanshort/​long''​) currently include hosts i0001-i0009while the gpu-Queues (''​infogpu''​) include the hosts g0001-g0009 ((formally there have been the ''​gpushort/​long''​ queues on these nodes - access however is restricted.)). The titan-hosts carry 4 GeForce GTX TITAN, hence a usage request up to ''​cuda=4''​ can be selected (see below). In contrast the GeForce GTX 480 is installed on the gpu-hosts (for the ''​gpushort/​long''​ queues). Finally, for the tesla-Queues (''​teslashort/​long''​) 4 Tesla K20m cards are installed.
  
 +====== GPU Usage ======
 +
 +To use a GPU you have to explicitly reserve it as a resource in the submission script:
 +
 +<code bash>
 +#!/bin/bash
 +# ... other SBATCH statements
 +#SBATCH --gres=gpu:<​number>​
 +#SBATCH -p <​appropriate partition>​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Number can be anything from 1-4 on our GPU nodes. In order to use more than 1 GPU the application needs to support using this much, of course.
 +
 +===== Using multiple nodes and multiple GPUs =====
 +
 +In order to use multiples nodes, you have to request more than one node.
