The Bright Cluster Manager burn framework is used to automatically run a set of test scripts on one or more HPC cluster nodes. This process allows you to verify that the hardware is functioning and that the cluster is fully operational — for example, before you sign off on the installation. The burn framework is installed by default on all Bright clusters.
Bright provides two ways to use the burn framework: via the Cluster Manager Shell (CMSH) or by using the Bright CMGUI. This article describes how to burn test nodes using the CMGUI. Burn tests using the CMSH will be covered in a separate posting.
Select the node you want to burn from the resource tree, then click on the burn tab. Press the "Start new burn" button.
