DCV Queue in ParallelCluster

DCV Queue

This lab requires a cluster setup, please follow instructions in Create an HPC Cluster section of the workshop before proceeding further.

In this lab, you modify an existing cluster to add a NICE DCV queue. This allows you to spin up workstations on the fly and has the following advantages over the DCV Connect in ParallelCluster setup:

  • DCV instances are ephemeral
  • Support for Multi-User if AD is setup
  • Support for mulitple DCV sessions
  • Automatic Session timeout
  • Support for Multiple Instance Types
