dc.description.abstract Over the last six decades, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has acquired, accepted, and integrated over 100 new HPC systems, from MANIAC in 1952 to Trinity in 2016. These systems range from small clusters to large supercomputers. Each type of system has its own challenges and having a well established and proven test, acceptance, and integration plan is valuable to the site and vendor to expedite the process. The topic of systems acceptance itself is quite broad, and for the purposes of this paper, it will be mostly focused on the system’s software and hardware components. Some discussion will be given to performance testing as well, but the purpose of this paper is to help HPC System Administrators with the acceptance process. en
