This page is intended to serve as a community and information hub for our machine learning/deep learning and data mining users.



GRAHAM is a heterogeneous cluster, suitable for a variety of workloads, and located at the University of Waterloo. A total of 35,520 cores and 320 GPU devices, spread across 1,107 nodes of different types. GPU nodes have 128 GB of memory, 16 cores/socket, 2 sockets/node, 2 NVIDIA P100 Pascal GPUs/node (12GB HBM2 memory). Intel "Broadwell" CPUs at 2.1Ghz, model E5-2683 v4. 1.6TB NVMe SSD.

Software Packages

This section is intended to list software that is being used at SHARCNET, as well as other popular packages that users may wish to consider using for their work. Optimally each package listed below will have it's own wiki page including installation, configuration and execution hints and tips, as well as a listing of different groups at SHARCNET that are experienced with the software.
