Besides the network a compute node lives on, there may be other features about it that you might need to specify for your program to run efficiently. Below is a table of some commonly requested node attributes that can be defined within the constraints of the sbatch and salloc commands.

Constraint What It Does
avx/avx2 Advanced Vector eXtensions, optimized math operations
Xeon Request compute nodes with Intel Xeon processors
Opteron Request compute nodes with AMD Opteron processors

Note: ALICE currently has avx/avx2 only.
