Instructors can request instructional allocations on Rivanna for classes and extended workshops. These allocations are time-limited and generally allow access to a restricted set of nodes and only one special SLURM partition, but are otherwise equivalent to any allocation.
Resource Availability Hardware and Partition Instructional allocations use a dedicated instructional partition. The standard allocation is 25,000 SUs for the semester during which the course is conducted. For workshops, the allocation will persist during the workshop and for two days afterwards. Instructional allocations come with 50GB of temporary project storage space. Data kept in the temporary project storage space will be automatically purged 2 weeks after the class ends unless the instructor requests an extension.
