High Performance Computing at the TU Kaiserslautern

Welcome to the homepage of the High Performance Computer Elwetritsch at the TU Kaiserslautern.

The High Performance Computer 'Elwetritsch' unites the available High Performance Computing resources at the TU Kaiserslautern within the framework of Allianz für Hochleistungsrechnen Rheinland-Pfalz, abbr. AHRP. Access to the computer is granted to all members of the TU Kaiserslautern and the AHRP.

Access and Usage

Members of the TU Kaiserslautern require a so called account for employees or an extended student's account. Members of the AHRP should contact us.

There are several possibilities to login to 'Elwetritsch' depending on your computer system. Simplest is accessing it via a LINUX-based system but of course access is available for Microsoft- or Apple-based systems as well. We provide several so called head nodes, elwe<x> with <x> being a number between 1 and 4 for login. A short summary on best practice using the batch system on 'Elwetritsch' provides further information besides the menue points at the top to hints on available resources, software, and a FAQ.

'Elwetritsch' is run by the HPC-team at RHRK. Feel free to contact us.
