Does this proposal define a new site beyond Server Fault, Super User, Computational Science, Linux, and our other computing sites?
Research Computing (proposal link)
for research computing facilitators, data center operators, XSEDE campus champions, ACI-REFS, and other users/supporters of advanced research computing
The purpose of Area 51 (our site-creation process) is to create sites in new subject areas that cannot be asked elsewhere. There's a discussion to decide if this proposal is mostly "general computing" questions that can be asked elsewhere. We generally do not create sites simply to give special-interest groups their own space unless the subjects are very specialized.
What do you think?
Have a look at the "top 40" questions above. Ignoring questions that may be "too broad" or too subjective, do you see a preponderance of questions that cannot be asked on either Server Fault, Super User, or our other computing sites?
Top 10 Marquee Questions for Research Computing
- What are cgroups and are they useful for cluster administration?
- How do I transfer large files to and from a remote system?
- My ssh terminal sessions keep timing out. What should I do to correct this situation?
- How do I find out what software is installed on an XSEDE resource, and how to link to it or use it?
- I would like to use Singularity or Shifter to run a program that requires a custom library under the /opt protected directory? How do I do this?
- How can I use passwordless ssh?
- How do you handle emergency resource requests, while still maintaining fair access to all users?
- What is OpenHPC, how and in what ways are people finding it useful?
- What annual conferences in the US pacific northwest specifically cover cluster operations?
- What are the problems with host Docker instances on a shared cluster?
Your help would be appreciated. Thank you.
