High-Performance Computing (HPC) allows you to accomplish your analysis faster by using many parallel CPUs and huge amounts of memory simultaneously.
This course provides a hands on introduction to running software on HPC infrastructure using Slurm.
You’ll learn to:
- Connect to an HPC cluster
- Use the Unix command line to operate a remote computer and create job scripts
- Submit and manage jobs on a cluster using a scheduler
- Transfer files to and from a remote computer
- Use software through environment modules
- Use parallelisation to speed up data analysis
- Access the facilities available to you as a researcher
This course assumes basic familiarity with the Bash command line environment found on GNU/Linux and other Unix-like environments. To come up to speed, consider taking our Unix Shell and Command Line Basics course.
Please note: this course comprises of two sessions held over two days:
- Session 1: Thursday 27 May 2021 – 9.30am–12.30pm
