LQCD Clusters at FNAL


A central goal of the groups using the computers is the accomplishment of the calculations required to extract from experiment the fundamental parameters of the Standard Model of particle physics.



The Fermilab LQCD computational facility consists of multiple clusters of Linux nodes on private networks, each connected to a central head node with interfaces on all private networks, as well as the site wide Fermilab network.
