Billed Usage on all HLRS Platforms

Procedure
  • In each institute/department there's a single contact person (Institute's Administrator), who takes care of all the following.
  • If there's nobody yet, someone has to be nominated. Please use this contact-form to define the contact person.
  • The contact person has access to the administration interface (password restricted).
  • Through this interface, the contact person can define new projects and new user-logins.
  • Accounting is done through projects. Each user is associated to a default project. A user can have billed projects as well as reviewed projects simultaneously.
  • Each project is associated with a group id, a group name, and an account name.
  • The account name is identical to the group name.
  • The default project is defined by the default group id.
  • If a user is logged-in to a system he/she can use the command id to see all group ids and associated group names.
  • With each compute job submission, the accounting project can be specified. Please see the online documentation for more information.
  • If a user is associated with more than one project, the user is responsible to always use the correct project. There's no retroactive change of the project affiliation for a job.
Billing Category

The HLRS platforms are billed according to the categories and rules in the "Entgeltordnung" as specified in our Legal Requirements.
