Home directory

Due to performance reasons the number of files in $HOME is limited to 1 Million files and 300GB of occupied space.

(In effect from December, 1, 2015.)

General Considerations

Home directories aren't intended on MOGON for jobs producing heavy I/O. Please use the respective project directories and limit the number of small files in general.

On MOGON II

$HOME on MOGON II is exposed using NFS from the gpfs file server. Therefore, limit jobs with heavy I/O to the lustre file systems. Heavy I/O can be produced with MPI started from the home directory, too.
