How to check allocation resources, expiration dates, and project members.

Allocation Resource Management

Add People to an Allocation

Use the Join an Existing Allocation form. The Allocation Manager for the allocation will be notified. Individuals added to an allocation will have access to the /projects/<allocationID> directory, but they will have their own home directory.

Renew an Existing Allocation or Create a New Allocation

Use the appropriate Research Allocation Original or Renewal Request form for your allocation type (I or II).

List Allocation Members

Display all current members of the allocation:

module load utilities
grouplist <allocationID>

Check Allocation Resources

You can find out your allocations by using groups command on Quest. The output of this command will include your NetID and the IDs of allocations that you belong.

To check the storage use of /projects/<allocationID> and allocation expiration:

checkproject <allocationID>

Example Output

$ checkproject <allocationID>
