My local IT service are going to help set up a MySQL database on their cluster. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations I could pass on to them for the set up of the database on the cluster.
The operating system on Rocket’s login and compute nodes is CentOS 7.3. The main data filestore is a 500TB Lustre parallel file system, and home directories are on a 20TB filesystem accessed via NFS. The Lustre filestore, home directories and all the nodes are connected by Mellanox Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) 100Gbps InfiniBand. Nodes within a rack (16 nodes, 704 cores) form an island with 1:1 blocking. Otherwise the blocking ratio is 16:9.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
