AQWA HPC question

    • soloviev

      I have been told that AQWA does not work on Linux clusters. However, on a Windows cluster, Aqwa models can be solved on a single node only since Aqwa is not MPI aware. Could you clarify what is meant by a node in this statement?
       
      Also, does AQWA work on HPC on a workstation?

      Thank you,

      Hi Alex, 


      See here for our supported platforms by application. AQWA is MS Windows only. 


      Single "node" in this context I believe means a single device (computer) within the cluster. A single node may have one or more CPU cores.


      Our AQWA online doc has a section called "4.4.1. Setting Aqwa Parallel Processing Options"  - This explains that AQWA can make use of multiple CPU cores. So yes, AQWA can take advantage of HPC.
