In order to login, submit remote jobs, and access data movement servers on XSEDE HPC, HTC, Viz, and Storage resources users must be part of an XSEDE allocated project. This page documents how RACD staff and collaborators involved in developing, testing, and supporting XSEDE software and software based services can request and be added to the XCI (TG-IRI160006) allocation.
Requesting Allocation Access
The following steps explain how to request allocation access.
Step 1: XSEDE User Portal Account
Before requesting access to the XCI allocation a user must already have an XSEDE User Portal account. If you do not have an XSEDE User Portal account visit the portal https://www.xsede.org/ and click on "Create Account" under the "SIGN IN" button. Once you have an account and can login, proceed to Step 2.
Step 2: Request Allocation Access
Send an e-mail to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Access to the XCI Allocation (TG-IRI160006) with the following information:
- Your XSEDE User Portal account name
- Which software component your are developing and/or supporting
- If you need to submit batch jobs, approximately how many compute hours you will need on which XSEDE resources. Compute hours are allocated and limited resource which RACD management need to manage so that we don't run out.
Once you submit your request and XCI management receives it, it will take 2 business days to process and take affect.
