Xeon Phi computing servers

All CITIUS users can access this service, but it must be requested through the requests and problem reporting form.

Connection with ctserv08

Use SSH with port 1301 and your CITIUS account.

  • ctserv08.inv.usc.es - 172.16.242.155

Connection is only possible from inside the CITIUS network. To connect from other places or from the RAI network it is necessary to use the VPN or the SSH gateway.

Using the Xeon Phi

The card uses the MPSS 3.5.1 software. It is not necessary to make a connection with the coprocessor to run a program if using the offload programming model. That mode is explained in the MPSS documentation and uses the micuser special user.

To execute native or MPI software it is necessary to make a SSH connection with mic0 with the same user and password used to log into the server:

  ssh mic0

Connection with ctws1

It is possible to work in the workstation physically or using SSH from the internal network. To connect use SSH, port 1301 and the CiTIUS credentials. To connect from other places or from the RAI network it is necessary to use the VPN or the SSH gateway.

  • ctws1.inv.usc.es - 172.16.243.187

There is documentation in /opt/intel/parallel_studio_xe_2013/Documentation/

Connection with ctphi3

To connect use SSH port 22 and the CITIUS credentials.

  • ctphi3.inv.usc.es - 172.16.242.161

Connection is only possible from inside the CITIUS network. To connect from other places or from the RAI network it is necessary to use the VPN or the SSH gateway.

BIOS parameters can be accesed using the command sudo syscfg. Manual for the command is below.
