Event description

Description


Why do this course?

High-Performance Computing (HPC) allows you to accomplish your analysis faster by using many parallel CPUs and huge amounts of memory simultaneously. This short course provides a hands on introduction to running software on HPC infrastructure.

You'll learn how:

  • HPC systems differ from traditional Unix environments

  • to apply for ongoing access of an HPC machine

  • the scheduler and batch systems work in HPC

  • to submit a job and check its progress to completion

  • to retrieve the results of your program

Prerequisites

This course assumes basic familiarity with the Bash command line environment found on GNU/Linux and other Unix-like environments. It also assumes knowledge of how to transfer files between computers using ssh and sftp.

If you lack these skills, consider taking Unix for HPC which blends Intermediate HPC with a primer on Unix and moving data around.

The Intersect approach to training

At Intersect, we work closely with our member universities to develop and deliver training that targets the day-to-day software and technology problems that researchers face. We deliver hands-on courses in a relaxed setting with knowledgeable, helpful trainers who are themselves researchers and who know how researchers work.
