HPC101 — High Performance Computing Workshop 1 – 5 p.m., B743 East Hall Tuesday, February 3 Monday, February 9 Wednesday, February 11 This course provides an overview of cluster computing in general and how to use the Flux cluster in particular. (Prerequisite: HPC 100 or equivalent.) For more information, and to register, visit this page. HPC201 — Advanced High Performance Computing Workshop 1 – 5 p.m., B743 East Hall Thursday, February 5 Friday, February 13 Monday, February 16 This course will cover some more advanced topics in cluster computing on the U-M Flux Cluster. Topics to be covered include a review of common parallel programming models and basic use of Flux; dependent and array scheduling; advanced troubleshooting and analysis using checkjob, qstat, and other tools; use of common scientific applications including Python, MATLAB, and R in parallel environments; parallel debugging and profiling of C and Fortran code, including logging, gdb (line-oriented debugging), ddt (GUI-based debugging) and map (GUI-based profiling) of MPI and OpenMP programs; and an introduction to using GPUs.
