The MCC Computer Cluster of LDM

The LDM's Monte Carlo Cluster (MCC) serves as the main cluster for simulations within the LDM, LNS and GFA groups. Although the majority of runs concern Monte Carlo Neutron Transport simulations (performed with McStas or MCNP), the cluster supports any type of simulations that its users may want to perform.

MCC is a Linux cluster that comprises of 30 nodes (28 slave nodes + 2 master nodes). It contains three sub-parts: the LDM/GFA's parts (nodes mcc20 - mcc37, mcc200-mcc206) and LNS's part (nodes mcc01-mcc04). In total, MCC provides 816 computing cores and 15TB of hard disk space. The table below provides an overview of the specs for each one of the available nodes.
