Access policy

From ALICE Documentation

ALICE Access policy is very similar but more restrictive than the Leiden University Account Policy.

In the startup phase of ALICE, accounts are created locally with respect to the cluster. The account names are similar to the ULCN or LUMC accounts, but have an independent password and home directory repository.

To request an account on ALICE, contact helpdesk@alice.leidenuniv.nl (mail request).

Scheduled Jobs

All computational jobs need to be submitted to the cluster using the job scheduler. Please read the SLURM Guide for helpful information on using the scheduler. Listed below are the runtime and resource limits for scheduled jobs.
