If you request an HPC account you are automatically added to these two mailing lists:
- hpc-announce: low bandwidth channel that is used for official announcements. Any outages or expected downtimes will be communicated through this list.
- hpc-users: a forum for the UGent HPC community, intended for discussions and communicating with other colleagues who use HPC resources. Users have the option to unsubscribe from the hpc-users list.
Optionally, UGent personnel without an HPC account who wish to be informed can be added to either or both mailing lists (self service - click links above).
In case of questions or requests, send a mail to email@example.com.
Please mention your name, HPC account id (vsc40xxx), problem description and error message and output associated with the problem.
