This is a GPU server of the Department of Computer Engineering, University of Peradeniya.

You can use this server using the LDAP login for ce.pdn.ac.lk undergraduates (which is used for CO top floor lab, aiken and tesla) without sudo access.

You can use ssh login. Since kepler.ce.pdn.ac.lk is not a public IP you shoud either

  • use a computer in the Peradeniya network or
  • ssh to a public IP server like tesla.ce.pdn.ac.lk or aiken.ce.pdn.ac.lk and ssh to kepler.ce.pdn.ac.lk from there.

Tesla K40c and Quadro K620.

We store frequently used datasets inside the kepler.ce.pdn.ac.lk local storage for easy access. You can access these by the following command:

ls /storage/datasets/

These datasets are in the read only mode. You can use these datsets as the input for your tasks but you have to output the results to your home directory. The following datasets are stored at the moment.

If you have suggestions for what datasets should be made available on this server, please send a request via email available in https://www.cs.umd.edu/~gihan/contact/ address.

You can access these by the following commands:

ls /storage/datasets

You can try with following command:

nvcc code.cu -arch=sm_35

The -arch=sm_35 flag is required to compile code properly on this server.

Please request through any CO staff member. Please note that the server admin has no authority to install something unless it is requested by a staff memeber.

  1. Send a request to the server admin via the server admin contact page to run this command:
