Introduction To HPC

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

SRCC and Stanford Libraries will be teaching an introduction to HPC course on Feb 08. This workshop is an introduction to using high-performance computing systems effectively. We obviously can’t cover every case or give an exhaustive course on parallel programming in just a few hours of teaching time. Instead, this workshop is intended to give students a good introduction and overview of the tools available and how to use them effectively. By the end of this workshop students will know how to:

    Connect to a cluster
    Write simple batch scripts
    Submit and manage jobs on a cluster
    Use a job scheduler (SLURM)
    Transfer files
    Use software through environment modules with LMOD.
    Estimate job RAM and CPU requests

Please note:  This class is for people who are beginners to HPC and SLURM. We will not be going into a deep dive on SLURM or sbatch directives. The class is not for people who already have HPC/SLURM experience. Some Linux command line experience with navigating the filesystem (ls, and cd commands) and editing files (nano) is required.
