Hello, my question concerns the use of the credits. If 1cpu credits = 1 cpu for 1 hour, how can i use the 200 cpu credits in term of number of cpus and hours, for exemple can i use mor than 1 cpu for more than one hour ?

thank you

@Mehdi,

We have single nodes with multiple cpu's. For example, if you run a simulation on a single node with 8 cpu for 2 hours then you will consume ${\displaystyle 8\times 2=16}$ credits.

You can also do cluster computing. Kogence clusters scale-up and scale-down automatically depending upon the job you submit. Lets say you submitted a job that needs 10 node cluster with 8 cpu's each and each node runs for 2 hours. Then you will need ${\displaystyle 10\times 8\times 2=160}$ credits.

Let us know if you have any further questions.
