Upcoming High Performance Computing Webinars

High Performance Computing — How Can It Improve My Research?

Where:  (Select as a Guest)
April 28th 10:30am-11:30am

Learn about what can be accomplished with HPC clusters, such as the ARC Flux cluster and NSF XSEDE machines.  We will cover how HPC resources let more work get done, or enable work that was unapproachable before.  We will use any remaining time to go into the details of the construction of the Flux system on campus as an example.

Basic Linux Commands and Remote File Transfer and Access

Where:  (Select as a Guest)
April 30th 10:30am-11:30am

Focused for new Linux users, users will learn the beginner command line. At the end of this session users should feel comfortable manipulating files and navigating the Linux filesystem.  Particular focus will be given to connecting to remote Linux systems with SSH from Mac and Windows, using the Flux Cluster as an example.
Commands covered:  ssh, sftp, globus, ls, mv, pwd, cd, etc.

Using Modules and the PBS Batch system

Where:  (Select as a Guest)
May 2nd 10:30am-11:30am

Users will learn how to use the extensive Flux software library via the Modules system. Modules provides a powerful and flexible way to manipulate a users environment, easing the management of many software titles on a shared system.
In the remaining time, users will learn how to use PBS, the batch system on Flux, to submit work loads.  All users of the cluster must use PBS, and at the end of this session users should feel comfortable submitting basic serial and parallel batch jobs to the cluster.
