  • Users are strongly encouraged to specify only the required number of processing cores.
  • The quota for each user is 50 GB in home directory.
  • It is strongly recommended that users backup their files-folders periodically, as ISTF will not be having a mechanism to backup users’ data.
  • For any issue or requests pertaining to Aneesur, please send your email with your working-path, error logs and error screenshots and submit-script only at helpdesk.istf@iitgn.ac.in
