# High Performance Computing clusters at INFN-CNAF
An __HPC cluster dedicated to CERN studies__ is available at INFN-CNAF (Bologna, Italy) allowing for MPI applications across multiple nodes.
The cluster presently features a total of about 800 CPU-cores.
## Access
Access to the cluster can be requested by sending an email to abp.computing[AT]cern.ch including the following information:
- The filled in <a href="https://www.cnaf.infn.it/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/accesso-cnaf-EN.pdf" target="_blank">form</a>. Please add Daniele Cesini as contact person and "Access to the hpc_acc Cluster to run High Energy Physics simulation codes" as the reason.
- A copy of identity card or other valid identification document (e.g. passport).
## Usage
- Users should connect via ssh to bastion.cnaf.infn.it and from there access the cluster front-end called ui-hpc2.cr.cnaf.infn.it.
- The LSF system is installed on the cluster to manage job submissions. Jobs should be submitted to the ”hpc acc” queue.
- If you have inquiries about running your jobs on this cluster or need technical support, please write an email to <a href="mailto:hpc-support@listsNOSPAMPLEASE.cnaf.infn.it">hpc-support@listsNOSPAMPLEASE.cnaf.infn.it</a>
