Description of File System:
/scratch is mounted on all worker nodes. The file system is intended to provide extremely high I/O throughput to or from disk. The files are subject to deletion once their quota\lifetime is exceeded. Users are granted a default quota of 100GB in /scratch and are requested to apply for additional storage by e-mailing the HPC administrators. Quotas are implemented for file system administration. This is the preferred place to put any intermediate files required while a job is executing. Users are expected to move their data from /scratch to long term storage as part of the clean up process in their job script. /scratch is purposely built as a computational work space area and is not intended for long term storage. This file system is not backed up.
