HPC 101: High Performance Computing Workshop — May 19
May 19, 2014 @ 12:00 am
Here’s an opportunity for Flux cluster users and potential users to learn about using the Flux computing cluster. This will be a hands-on experience, in which you will log in to the cluster and work with jobs. HPC 101 1 – 5 p.m., May 19 B745 East Hall (530 Church St.) Instructor: Dr. Charles Antonelli, Advocacy and Research Support Group, LSA-IT HPC 101 (prerequisite is HPC100 or equivalent): This course will provide an overview of cluster computing in general and how to use the U-M Flux Cluster in particular. Topics to be covered include cluster computing concepts, common parallel programming models, introduction to the Flux Cluster; creating, submitting, observing, and analyzing cluster jobs; common pitfalls and how to avoid them; and some useful tools. We will issue you a temporary allocation to use for the course, or you can use your existing Flux allocations, if any. Short sample programs will be provided, or come to class with your own. A full description is available, and advance registration is strongly recommended.
