* When determining the order of starting compute jobs, jobs with higher priority are given preference.

** Accounting of the use the computing servers is based on the amount of memory (with 1 unit being equal to 6 GB of RAM/h) and processors (with 1 unit being equal to 1 core hour) allocated to the user’s job(s).

For the structural units of University of Tartu, the price is based on whichever resource has more units allocated to it. For instance, for a job that uses 1 core and 2 GB of memory, and runs for 10 hours, the price is max(1, 2/6)*10*0.012=0.12 euros, but for a job that uses 1 core and 12 GB of memory, and runs for 10 hours, the price is max(1, 12/6)*10*0.012=0.24 euros.

*** For example, in case of a virtual server m.xsmall flavor with 1 processor core, 1GB of ram and 10GB of SSD storage space allocated for it, will cost 1*0.003*24*365 = 26 euros per year for the CPU and 1*0.0013*24*365 = 11 euros per year for RAM and 1/10*0.138*24*365 = 120 euros per year for the storage space
