Each HPC Cluster includes an easy to use monitoring tool allowing you to view all important operating conditions through a web based Graphical User Interface (GUI). Through your web browser, you can remotely access details regarding cpu usage, cpu temperatures, chassis and cpu fan speeds, hard drive temperatures, memory utilization, hard drive swap space and many more metrics. You can even specify different time periods to gauge each metrics over those specified times. Computing overhead for cluster monitoring is extremely low due to the carefully engineered data structures.
One of the most important items to monitor is the computing environment. Maintaining a good computing environment is key to the success and longevity of your PSSC Labs HPC Cluster. With CBEST® you can carefully monitor environmental conditions including temperature and humidity. If these environmental conditions reach harmful levels, CBEST® can include scripts to automatically shut down the system in a safe manner. This is just another example of the extra steps HPC Cluster Technicians takes to protect your HPC Cluster.
