Overview

This afternoon workshop is targeted at new users of the University's High Performance Computing (HPC) resources, and especially new users of the Deepthought2 and/or Juggernaut clusters. This course will introduce participants to the basics of high-performance computing (HPC), and will briefly cover:

  • general HPC concepts, terminology, etc.
  • accessing the cluster
  • accessing software installed on the cluster
  • transferring files
  • submitting jobs on the cluster

Much of the above tasks will be discussed in terms of the recently added OnDemand web portal for the cluster.

Prerequisites

None. This is an introductory workshop and is targetted at new users of the cluster, so no previous knowledge of high performance computing is assumed.

System Requirements

As this webinar will be offered via Zoom, you are assumed to have a system (preferably a laptop or desktop) with Zoom installed. You will likely also want to have a modern web browser to look at the OnDemand portal.
