Time and Date: Wednesday, 2020-06-10 / 13:00 - 16:00 (Pacific Daylight Time)
SRCC and Stanford Libraries will be teaching an introduction to HPC course on June 10. 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.
